Cedar Mountain News for 11-4-21
CMCC THANKSGIVING DINNER
On Monday, November 15th the center will hold a Thanksgiving potluck. Turkey will be provided by the center. You are invited to bring a covered dish, salad, dessert, etc. to complement the dinner. Please have your dish on the serving table by 6:15 pm. Everyone is welcome.
Also in the works is a soup or chili cook-off in January.
MCGAHA CHRISTMAS CAROLING
The annual McGaha Chapel Christmas Caroling will take place this year at the Cedar Mountain Community Center on Sunday, December 5th at 2:30 pm. The Community Center, built in 1953, is larger than the historic 1872 McGaha Chapel and we will be able to "spread out" as we sing. We will also avoid the necessity of close quarter shuttling to the Chapel. Hot cider, coffee, and home-baked goodies will be served after the singing. You are invited to bring a favorite cookie, cake, or candy to share. Next year we hope to celebrate in the beautiful old McGaha Chapel again. Come join us as we open the Christmas season with song, fellowship, and food!
COMMUNITY CENTER RENTAL
The Community Center is for rent! The center has a capacity of 150 standing and seating for 100. There is a commercial-style kitchen too. Our center is the perfect place for your reception, party, family reunion, business meeting, or other activity. Get married outside and have your reception at the Center or use it as a dressing room for outdoor weddings. Make food in the commercial kitchen or have it catered by local professionals. To rent, email Caroline Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 828-290-9662.
Most local Cedar Mountain area businesses finished their Friday & Saturday evening outdoor entertainment as the cold sets in. It’s so nice to be able to stay in beautiful Cedar Mountain and have all one’s needs or wants met! Still, after enjoying a hike or bike ride in the DuPont State Recreational Forest, you can enjoy a meal at Creekside Market (and pick up some milk, bread, or butter while there), or at the Cedar Mountain Cafe. Snacking at The Velvet Cup is convenient too, with outdoor seating, so bring your leashed dog! Most evenings you can gather at the Canteen for refreshments and tell others of your day’s conquests.
Need gas? There’s a pump up & running at the Outpost; cards only (no cash).
Practice for this year’s Christmas cantata at Rocky Hill Baptist Church has just begun. The title of this year’s cantata is “Noel, Born is the King”, created by Dennis & Nan Allen. If you’d like to sing in the cantata just show up for practice at 7 pm Wednesday. Lenoir Bishop, choir director, welcomes all.
More information is available at (828)862-5611; the church office. Rocky Hill’s pastor, Dr. Leland Holland, answers this phone.
DAYLIGHT SAVING’S TIME ENDS
On November 7th at 2:00 am Daylight Saving’s Time ends so we will all “Fall Back”.
NEED A PHONE NUMBER?
Did you know, if you dial 411 to get a phone number, you will be charged $2.99 now? At least through Comporium.
PISGAH FOREST LANDFILL PERKS
If you have a bunch or boxes to dispose of you may want to take them to the Pisgah Forest trash site. They have a “box crusher” so you don’t have to break them down yourself as you do at the See Off site. Hours at Pisgah Forest are 7 am-7 pm Monday thru Saturday.
The Pisgah Forest site recently added bright yellow “workout bars”(ahem), which are actually for your protection. If you can’t heave your trash bag over these bars someone will help. We have kind & helpful workers at both sites!
In next week’s column, I’ll list the November birthdays & anniversaries. Please call (828) 885-2103 or email me with yours: chris_p_artist@Yahoo.com
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
The highlight of the week was our new membership to the Brevard Racquet Club. We only signed up for a 3-month trial membership because we don’t know how long our resolve will last. It takes couch potatoes a little longer to adjust to more rigorous activity or just get up off the couch.
