We had a tremendous turnout for the chicken dinner. Approximately 160 dinners were served. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make it possible. All proceeds benefited the Cedar Mountain Community Center. One of our biggest customers was Creekside Market. They held their regular live music entertainment on Saturday evening and served chicken dinners from CMCC.

CHRISTINE'S CORNER: ~ Christine Pace
GOING'S ON LAST WEEK
The Bishop Reunion and singing was held last Saturday here in Cedar Mountain, with approx. sixty in attendance. Lenoir, Wayne and Myron Bishop, called the singing Bishop Brothers were included in this group, as was their adopted bass singer Lee Smith. Music and fellowship abounded!
Joe and Christine have been babysitting pets for their children who, with their families, decided to take their vacations the same week! Luckily they are home now and Joe can stop building the Ark. Their son Matthew came here with a friend and did a 15-mile bike ride in DuPont before flying to Brazil to join his wife Daniela and our 6-year-old grandson Levi. Daniela's parents and 103-year-old grandmother live in Brazil.
Pastor Leland Holland and his wife Deb held an Open House drop-in at their home in Connestee last Saturday. Dr. Holland is pastor at Rocky HillBaptist Church. If he hadn't decided to go into ministry I'm sure he would be head chef at a restaurant somewhere - he is a superb cook!
Rocky Hill Baptist Church hosted the quarterly Transylvania County Baptist Associational meeting last Tuesday, the 21st.
This Tuesday (Aug. 28th) I went with daughter Carri Harris and her girls to the children's museum in Greenville, SC. Then I returned her dog!
Anita Goldschmidt's son Jeff, from New York, is visiting. He helped Anita celebrate her birthday on Monday.
AROUND THE HOUSE ~ Linda Young
My visit to my niece’s vacation place in Lake Lure a couple of weeks ago had an unexpected “bonus”. My two nieces, my sister (who thought she wasn’t allergic) and I all got poison ivy as a result of pulling weeds. Both my sister and I sought medical attention. Thank goodness the little kids didn’t get it.
My sister, Kay, got a big surprise when she tried to fill her prescription. The pharmacy asked for $700. My prescription for the same medicine cost 60 cents at Wal-Mart. Obviously some mistake had been made but when she tried to call the clinic it was closed. It took two more itchy days to get the proper medication. She was not pleased.
