On Monday 9-12 at 5:30pm at the Sports/Tennis court at the Cedar Mountain Community Center, there will be a tennis demonstration presented by Joseph Shraeder, Brevard High School senior and state 2A singles champion and Jonathan Walker who ranked # 2 in the South in men’s open singles. They won’t be playing an actual match but will be demonstrating a few games and maneuvers, etc. Seating is limited so you might want to bring a lawn chair.
This 50-year old tennis court was recently completely resurfaced by Mike and Josh Vandergrift and their staff as well as numerous Cedar Mountain Community Center volunteers. The Sports/Tennis court was refurbished as a gift from the Brevard Health and Racquet Club.
The tennis demonstration will be followed by our monthly potluck starting at 6:15pm. We will eat about 6:30. Then a program by Jason Guidry of the DuPont State Recreational Forest will be presented at about 7pm. Everyone is invited.
As a service to the community, volunteers from the Cedar Mountain Community Center got together last Friday to clip bushes and pull weeds and clean up at the Cedar Mountain Post Office. Participants included Suzanne Lawson, Sue Russell, Linda Young, Beth and Clint Owings, Deborah Corn and Patty Stahl. Anyone who would like to help maintain the post office grounds is invited to pull a weed or two as you come and go.

AROUND THE HOUSE
I want to thank my neighbor, Susan, for encouraging me to contact Toby Huter about spending her next school year in South Korea. There is an article in the 8-25-16 T-Times that she wrote nearly entirely by herself with little help from me. The Times added some additional information but her story was essentially written by Toby herself. We are lucky to have such fine young people as Toby and Matthew Huter in Cedar Mountain and in the world for that matter. We are so proud of both of them. Congratulations also to Susan and Steve Huter who are their proud parents.
I purchased a bat house hoping that the Carolina Bats roosting under my roof peak will move. If it were not right where I walk I could ignore it. I have counted as many as 7 of them at one point and that means lots of guano. Lots of guano means they ate a lot of bugs but it is still a mess and the old “bat” who lives in the house wants to evict them. Does anyone know how to encourage bats to use a different “hang out”?
