I have family visiting from Florida (they have a place in Lake Lure). We went to see the fireworks and we are going tubing on the Davidson River this week. I have a great niece and nephew who will just love this. I’m going to attempt to go too if I can manage to get myself into a tube (and my swim suit). Ha. More on that next week.

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.
