Many awards were handed out.

Among the most prestigious awards conferred by the Governor of North Carolina, is the Order of the Long Leaf Pine. It is awarded to persons for exemplary service to the State of North Carolina and their communities that is above and beyond the call of duty and which has made a significant impact and strengthened North Carolina. Long time member of the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue Dept. Jimmy Jones, was presented this coveted award by Senator Chuck Edwards. Congratulations, Jimmy.

Others receiving this Order include poet Maya Angelou, Kenny Rogers, The Blue Angels, Ted Williams, Tennessee Williams, Oprah Winfrey, Tammy Wynette and thousands more.

Awards were given for Years of service, firefighter of the year, and the John McDaris Outstanding Service Award. Treasurer, Kathy Woods, received recognition as Auxiliary Member of the Year.

Auxiliary president, Candy Gray, presented Chief David Summey with a simulated check for $20,000 toward the purchase of new extrication equipment for the department. A grant for additional funds for the equipment has been applied for.

If we learned anything today (Tues) it was to never go to the Transylvania County Landfill after a rain. We were in mud over an inch deep. When my honey heaved our last contribution on the pile, he slipped and rolled in the mud. After much ado I managed to help him get up. Workers nearby merely watched us struggle. I managed to wipe off most of the gunk of him so it wouldn’t get on the truck seats. The ride home was odiferous considering the amount of dump juice was on his clothes. He undressed in the basement and I threw his clothes in the washer. He did sustain a gouge on his forearm that I had to patch up. He was otherwise unscathed thank goodness.

Thank you for reading the Cedar Mountain News. Your contributions and comments are encouraged and welcome. We’d like to hear what’s going on if you would like to share. Photos are welcome as well. Please respond by Monday evening.
