Thank you to everyone who has attended and encouraged us to continue this offering.  Think 'slow & stretchy': a peaceful yoga for everybody.  1-hour $10/per person.  Cedar Mountain Outpost, 8431 Greenville Hwy, 28712

 

EGG HUNT

Cedar Mountain Moonshine Distillery will be hosting its annual Cedar Mountain Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 23rd from 3-4 PM. Bring your own basket to hunt for colorful eggs, take your picture with the Easter Bunny, and stick around for some hippity hoppity games!  We will start the egg hunt right around 3 PM…so, be on the line ready to GO!  If you would like to make a candy, egg, or filler donation, please drop off items at the distillery before March 17th. If we aren’t there, just leave in the back of the ‘ol truck. We have over 1,000 eggs to fill and hide! Helping hands are always appreciated!

 

DARK SKIES – CMCC

The public is invited to attend the next presentation of our monthly "Fire Side Chats" at the Cedar Mountain Community Center. The presentation will be given by Al Brothers, a passionate advocate for the Dark Sky Initiative. This initiative is dedicated to restoring the nighttime environment and protecting communities from the harmful effects of light pollution through outreach, advocacy, and conservation. It aims to preserve the natural night sky, promote scientific research and education in astronomy, and raise awareness about the importance of reducing light pollution. This presentation is particularly timely as International Dark Sky Week will be observed from April 2-8. This week is dedicated to celebrating the night and taking action to protect the night from light pollution. The presentation will be on Wednesday, March 27th at 2:00 PM at Cedar Mountain Community Center, 10635 Greenville Highway in Cedar Mountain.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

Do your dogs or other pets like to ride in your car?  I’m not limiting this to “canines” only.  Let me (Christine) know at: chris_p_artist@yahoo.com.  My pups each have special leashes that attach to a seat belt while riding, just in case.

 

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

In answer to Christine’s question about pets traveling with you, our kitty kids are used to it by now.  We now know other campers who take dogs, cats and other pets with them when they travel.  The only disadvantage to taking pets is their care.  We can’t just leave the motor home for hours and leave them without air conditioning.  They do have many admirers when sunning themselves in the expansive front window of the Infirmary (motor home). 

 

NOTE: All news must be sent to cedarmountainnews@gmail.com.  Photos need to be high resolution to ensure printability.  900kbs or more is recommended.

 

The deadline for the CM News is Monday evening or early Tuesday morning unless otherwise notified.  Your news and announcements are most welcome, and we need to see more of it.
