Board of Directors Meeting June 9th at 4pm

CEDAR MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY CENTER NEWS The next community center program will be on Monday, June 13. Please have your covered-dish on the table by 6:15pm. The program will be about the original road that ran from here in Cedar Mountain to Brevard, NC, known then as the "Johnstone Turnpike". This will be one you won't want to miss.

Don’t forget to bring food for “Cans for the Community”.


Both the Cedar Mountain Community Center and Whistlestop Produce are collecting Cans for the Community and a large donation was recently made to Bread of Life. Pet food is also needed along with pantry items such as cereal, sugar & flour. Bottled foods such as ketchup, mayonnaise etc. are also welcomed. Foods slightly past their “sell by” dates are acceptable. Look for the big blue tubs at both sites.

Let’s sing 50 years of songs that you haven’t sung in a long time. Come honor Gramps and Dad on Father’s Day by singing the songs they taught you those many years ago. Easy, tuneful songs. Songs you don’t even need a songbook for (but we’ll have some on hand just in case). Be at historic (1872) McGaha Chapel in Cedar Mountain at 2 p.m. on Father’s Day, June 19th, for 45 minutes of pure tuneful enjoyment, followed by freshly cut watermelon just outside the Chapel. McGaha Chapel is located on U.S. 276 South, just across from Sherwood Forest. Signs will mark the spot for the Chapel and nearby parking. Shuttle service will be available for those who prefer. Sponsored by the Greater Cedar Mountain Community and the Transylvania County Historical Society. (Questions? Contact Charles Burden, 884-8728)

This week has been a whirlwind of activity for my friend, Dnita, and I. We used the Transylvania Explorer to plan our entertainment. Although I’ve been there before we both enjoyed the Sound of Silvermont. We especially enjoyed the left handed fiddler who had a prosthetic left arm that he held his bow with. Amazing! We also went to the TC Arts Council for “A Celebration of Waterfalls” exhibit. We have quite a few talented artists and photographers in the area. Be sure to visit and enjoy.

Another adventure on the agenda was scrounging the thrift stores. I didn’t need anything, but still managed to find a couple of treasures. She, on the other hand, needed to ship home a big box of clothes for her grandkids and some other items. I don’t brew coffee (I use instant) but she found a nice coffee pot at Restore for $4.00. She’s leaving it so now I will have one for any subsequent guests.

Our last excursion included short treks to Looking Glass Falls, Connestee Falls and Hooker Falls. Hooker Falls was alive with swimmers, climbers and a couple of fishermen Monday. Some adventurous souls were even sitting underneath behind the waterfall. It looked very refreshing.

When visiting the waterfalls be sure to obey the warning signs. Your life depends on it.

What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear about it if you would like to share. All news for next week must be received by Monday evening in order to be published in the Thursday edition of the Transylvania Times

Please email with any news or questions.
