The Cedar Mtn. Community Center Board will meet Thursday October 6th at 4pm.
TOUR DE FALLS OCT 8TH AND 9TH
The Friends of DuPont State Forest coordinates the Tour de Falls, a 12-mile waterfall tour by shuttle bus to four popular spots: Triple Falls, High Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Lake Julia. Shuttles run every 30 minutes from 9:30 AM until 2:30 PM, allowing you the chance to enjoy each site for as long as you like. If you (or a friend or family member) are not able to hike to the waterfalls at DuPont State Recreational Forest, you can ride a shuttle bus to see them! There will be volunteers on each shuttle and at the four stops to provide information about the history of the forest and the work now being done to preserve and protect it. Triple Falls and High Falls have covered shelters with picnic tables. There are no food concessions so bring snacks and water. Bring your camera! The tour can take over 3 hours. The parking lot for the tour is located near the High Falls access area at 89 Buck Forest Road, Cedar Mountain, NC. Advance reservations are not taken. A donation of $6 for ages 6 to 17 and $12 for ages 18 and up is requested. They accept donations by cash or check only. Buses are not handicap-accessible and pets are not allowed on the buses.Come and visit this beautiful park and the waterfalls on what promises to be a beautiful fall day.

If you wish to bring covered dishes, desserts or salads as well they need to be on the table by 6:15pm. Following a brief meeting Patty Stahl and Charles Burden will present part two in a series on the Roads of the Past in Cedar Mountain.
FAREWELL GOOD FOLKS
All who knew George & Nancy Mayer will agree they will be missed in our community. "What a great impact they had on me; on so many!" exclaims Christine Pace, who considers Nancy "like a sister ... only better". They are moving to South Carolina, about four & one-half hours away. By the time you read this they will already be gone, but never forgotten. Having spent almost the last ten year's as residents in Sherwood Forest, and as active community members and church regulars at Rocky Hill Baptist church, they showered love and affection, good will and kindness to everyone they met. "They are givers" says Christine, "and taught me a lot about freeing myself to be able to open my heart, eyes and ears to the needs and delights of others before myself. I will forever be grateful to them, and Nancy will always be my sister." A group of twenty met Monday evening in Brevard for a farewell dinner, with a promise to keep in touch. Prayers were offered, and all are excited to see where they are lead next; they are moving to better care for Nancy's mother, nearer to one of their daughter's homes as well. Hopefully they will be lead back to Cedar Mountain now and then, as there are places to rent and many good friends they are sadly leaving behind. God speed my friends!
This past Sunday morning former resident Mildred Bishop passed away after a battle with cancer. She had moved out of state to be nearer her daughter, but had hoped to return to Cedar Mountain from time to time. Many fond memories remain of our friend Mildred.
Joe & I (Christine Pace) have an almost-ten-month-old puppy in need of a good forever home. "Bo" is a Chihuahua mix, the dad being either Jack Russell or Corgi. He is smart and cute (looks like a Chi) and has been around other dogs big & small, and a large house cat, most of his life. He is a foster pup and we were helping out another foster mom. He needs a home where he can bond with a new family. Bo comes free, with a crate, to a family who will be able to give him shots, neutering and especially lots of love! If you know anyone who may be interested please call (828)885-2103 between 4:30 - 8:30PM and ask for Christine. Many thanks!

AROUND THE HOUSE
I often get packages or items online that come from, Taiwan, China etc. My latest purchase came from Port Vila, the Republic of Vanuatu which I had never heard of. As it turns out it is part of a group of volcanic islands in the South Pacific (which until 1980 was known as New Hebrides) about a 1000 miles NE of Australia. Research online made me long to go there, but it is neither on my bucket list nor in my budget.
