HAPPY NEW YEAR
Linda and I(Christine)send Happy New Year wishes to all Cedar Mountain residents and all who read this. Hopefully. this coming year will be much greater than 2020; everyone stay well & safe. We're looking forward to gathering again this spring or summer for many community events!
Linda is taking a vacation this week; she'll probably be back home by the time this comes out in Thursday's Transylvania Times. If you sent news to her personally or to the Cedar Mountain News email address(which I don't have access to), please advise Linda of this when she returns.
Below I will share what little I have to share this week, and invite you to send me and/or Linda any news-to-share next week, or at any time. My contact information is: firstname.lastname@example.org or (828)885-2103. Thank you for all your wonderful submissions throughout the year. Do enjoy the below "news", please.
BIRTHDAYS: I have 15 known local birthdays to share, starting with Timothy Brown, who celebrates another year on January 5th; Tommy Taylor gains another year on Jan. 8th; Mary Kaye Dunbar celebrates on the 15th. Joee Taylor's birthday is January 18th

ANNIVERSARIES: I'm not sure of the popularity, but I know of three local couples who celebrate their wedding anniversary on January 1st each year: Rick & Claire Skerrett, Tommy & Pauline Taylor, and Jentsen & Margie Rackley. Congratulations and Best Wishes!
Ha! I get the whole "room" this week, don't I? I'd rather share the space though; please send me your news.
I have only one piece of wisdom to share with you this week: If you keep a spare room unheated(I do), be sure not to store things you will be wearing soon like scarves & gloves in there when the temperatures dip below freezing. I did, and when I went into the room to grab my two needed items to wear they were COLD! Very cold. I learned my lesson!
Thank you, readers, friends & neighbors for reading our little community news column each week. God bless you.
