They 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.

ROCKY HILL BAPTIST CHURCH
Following a super VBS, we had three children and one adult baptized this past Sunday morning at Rocky Hill. The church was packed and Pastor Leland Holland presented a great sermon of hope & inspiration after the baptism. On Thursday Sept. 8th a group from the church traveled to the North Carolina "Broyhill Baptist Children's Home" for a BBQ and visit of their campus, which is located in Clyde, NC. This "home" does wonders for many children, boys & girls, who otherwise would have been distressed with home or life situations. To learn more feel free to call Dr. Holland at Rocky Hill church at (828)862-5611.
Joe Earl Pace and wife Christine have finally moved, to just one (level) house on a smaller, level yard. I say moving "day" but as many know it does not begin and end in a day. Christine will be unpacking "until Thanksgiving" she says. Their phone number and other social media contacts remain the same. Joe Pace says he loves our new home. Congratulations to two deserving people. They look forward to seeing all of you at the next community center meeting and will happily give you their new address while there. "By the way" says Christine "I now have to learn to cook using gas.” Joe laughingly says "She just needs to learn to cook, period." Jimmy Harris of Harris Ace Hardware, their son-in-law, was most helpful in helping do all the little things needed in a new home, and Chris & Joe want to say a big "Thank you" here. "He's my favorite son-in-love." says Christine.
AROUND THE HOUSE
I lost my mind and went to the Apple Festival in Hendersonville. Parking and traffic was a nightmare. I parked in front of a beauty salon and was lucky to find a spot so close to downtown. The salon owner (along with every other business owner) was collecting $5. She said a previous festival goer had just left so I lucked out to get that close to downtown. She said that was the only money she’d get that day because customers couldn’t come to an appointment.
While there were interesting booths and great food vendors it was a challenge to just walk in that crowd let alone visit the booths.
I made my way to the Mast General Store however and bought some candy that you don’t usually see in other stores. My aim was to get some Horehound candy but didn’t see it until leaving and I wasn’t about to get in line again.
Didn’t buy a single apple because of the crowd. I’ll go to the Whistlestop or grocery store.
Thanks to those who offered solutions to my Carolina Bat problem. One suggestion I will try is a spotlight on the area where they roost. Only problem with that is that it will shine in my bedroom windows. I will let you know if it works. I have to put up the new bat habitat first so they have place to move to.
