CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR THURSDAY 3-23-17
REMEMBERING THE GREAT FLOOD OF 1916 This Thursday evening at about 7:15pm Dunn's Rock Community Center, is hosting a program entitled "Come Hell or High Water", a documentary about the Great Flood of 1916. It is doubtful any residents here remember this flood except through stories their families may have told. If you have a tale to tell about this catastrophic flood, or want to learn more about it, you are invited to attend the program. There will be a discussion period following the presentation.
Prior to the presentation a "Hobo Dinner" consisting of pinto beans and cornbread, chow-chow and a wedge salad will begin at 6:00 pm. You are welcome to bring a desert to share or a pot of beans. Please call Janet if you will be bringing anything at (828)883-2678. Monetary contributions are always welcome too, and will be used for the building fund at Dunn's Rock Community Center. Hope to see you there!

I went to the first ever "Vintage Market Days" show held at the WNC Ag Center this past week. Luckily I had tickets ahead of time, because there were over a thousand folks standing in long lines snaking through the parking lot waiting to purchase the $5 tickets. Once inside we were "packed like sardines", and it was difficult to see what was offered in the almost-100 vendor booths. Looking on Facebook I already knew what to expect, and was disappointed in the overly-crowded building where the show was held. Perhaps it was because it was a new show? There will be a second held there in August this year. Hubby Joe went with me and said he has never seen so many folks, and especially where he did not recognize a single person!
Shopping at the Brevard Ingles store on Tuesday earns you triple points for gas! I just need to remember to shop Tuesdays.
My sweet and talented grandson Levi Emmanuel Jones, of Matthews, NC turns 8 on March 26th. Happy birthday Levi! Joe will have a birthday soon; April 9th, and will be 82 year's young! Let me know if you or a loved one will be celebrating in April please.
Otherwise it's pretty quiet on the home front. The weather has been very mild this winter all-in-all, and neither Joe nor myself came down with the "crud" that plagued many. No updates on Pastor Dan Ray, though prayers for his recovery are still welcome.
AROUND THE HOUSE
From a Reader
Our Cedar Mt. News Scribe, Linda Young” is an inventive lady. She has outdone herself this time. I ask, “Are you receiving more illegal phone calls from unidentified salespersons? Does it make you mad as an ole wet hen? Do you ever think about the poor soul whose job it is to make that call?” Linda put a little fun into this sorry business. She answered with “MEOW” and just kept meowing until the girl on the other end started laughing. She laughed. The world was a happier place. Try it. You’ll like it. PS you can still tell them to take your name & number off their list. Just thought you should know that you have been spreading sunshine. My sister replied that she was still laughing. ~ Gloria Harris
