CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR THURSDAY 8-20-20
CMFRD BLOOD DRIVE
A blood drive will be held at the Cedar Mountain Fire Station on Saturday, August 22 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Everyone will need to park behind the fire station and be screened before coming in the back door. There is an ongoing critical need for blood as many are not still not leaving their homes. It is strongly encouraged to come to donate in this time of great need.
A drive-through Barbecue Dinner fundraiser will be held Saturday, August 29th at the front of the Cedar Mountain Community Center. A donation of $10 per meal is suggested.
Our new pavilion is quickly progressing and expected to be complete by then.
CEDAR MOUNTAIN 2021 CALENDAR
We expect to have our 2021 calendars available for sale at the BBQ on August 29th. The suggested donation is $15 each. Due to the popularity of historical content, the theme will once again represent Cedar Mountain’s past. We want to thank those who have shared the many old photos that have made this calendar possible.

Christine is still in the process of moving which she needs to complete by the weekend. On Monday she is having a procedure to correct a problem with her digestive system so she will not have news for us next week either. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
I visited Christine at her new digs over the weekend. She is .3 miles from my house. We enjoyed meatball sandwiches from Subway and I got a grand tour of her studio and yard. She has lots of room for her art projects. I marveled at her gourd and cypress knee creations. What a gift she has.
My carpeted basement stairs was a mess so I decided to rip it out. That was the easy part. It took days to remove the staples and tack strips. I wish I had a nickel for every staple I removed. I was surprised to see how nice the wood looked though. I had thought to paint it but will now attempt to clean it up and stain it to match the yellow pine walls leading into the basement. The wood is extremely hard so I think they used yellow pine for the treads as well. The landing, however, is composed partly of plywood which is not so nice. I’m still giving that some thought.
Youtube is amazing. I found out how to fill in knotholes and other defects with resin. I d am seriously thinking of attempting that. I’ll keep you posted.
