VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL AT ROCKY HILL THIS SUNDAY
It's that time of year again; Rocky Hill Baptist Church on Hwy. 276 (just past the Cedar Mountain Fire Department) is staged for a fabulous Vacation Bible School. Organized by Patty Stahl again this year, and her many helpers, our VBS always proves to be one of the best in the county! At least that's what Christine says. This year's theme is "Submerged".
Families are invited to come out this Sunday at 5:00pm to the side of the church, where the Cedar Mountain Fire Department will use their big fire truck hose for the annual "Slip 'N Slide" that kicks off VBS at Rocky Hill. Children should wear a bathing suit or shorts & a tee, and bring a towel and change of clothes. Following a fun "Submerging" the whole family is invited to a hot dog dinner next door at the Family Life Center, including S'mores on the fire pit. After supper children will line up at the church and begin a fun-filled five days of learning, crafts, music, eating and playing. Monday through Thursday VBS will begin at 6:30pm and last to 8:30pm.
For more information please call Patty Stahl at (828)885-2498. Hope to see you there! The attached photo features Ashlee Deal, Daughter of Deborah and Leland Holland of Cedar Mountain. The photo was taken and edited by Erin (Holland) Miller. Erin did some digital magic by superimposing her sister’s photo on the shark photo. It’s funny that both Ashlee and the shark have the same expression.
COMMUNITY AUCTION AUGUST 8TH
One of the most popular community meetings each year is the Auction held the second Monday in August. Bring a great item to donate if you will, plus a covered dish to share and enjoy entertainment and possibly go home with a new "treasure"! All monies raised at this auction are used for upkeep and improvements to our fabulous community center.
We eat at 6:30 on the dot, so it is suggested you have your covered dish there by 6:15pm; even earlier if you have an item to donate. Christine knows of one super-neat item, a one-of-a-kind, which will probably be the hit of the evening! That may be disputed; only one way to know: come out to the auction at the Cedar Mountain Community Center Monday August 8th.
WORKS OF ART - ON GOURDS!
The 6th annual "Mountain Gourd Gathering" will be held at the Family Life Center building as usual, beginning on Thursday afternoon August 18th and going all day Friday & Saturday August 19th & 20th. Christine Pace is host and you are welcome to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (828)885-2103. Classes are posted day-by-day, with different afternoon and morning classes, at their web site at: http://mountaingourdgathering.weebly.com Teachers and students come from all over the southeast! There are a limited amount of select art vendors too, including Dickie & Linda Martin, the owners of Ghost Creek Gourd Farm (Laurens, SC) with already-cleaned thick-shelled gourds for sale.
HOMECOMING AT ROCKY HILL
Always the 4th Sunday in August Rocky Hill Baptist Church has their Homecoming, filled with music and stories, preaching and good eating! This year's homecoming date is August 28th.

AROUND THE HOUSE
I am finally recovering from a serious allergic reaction to perfume recently. I had no idea how allergic I was until my nasal passages and throat started burning. I got hoarse, jittery and somewhat nauseas. I will have to be very cautious of exposure from now on.
