CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR JULY 1, 2021
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
CEDAR MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY POTLUCK
The next meeting and potluck will be Monday, July 12th. Please have your dishes to share on the serving tables by 6:15 pm. Serving will begin at 6:30 pm. Covid protocols will be followed. Face masks are encouraged but not mandatory.
Following a brief meeting after the potluck, the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue department will demonstrate the Jaws of Life on a donated car. You will be amazed at how quickly this equipment can free an injured person from a wrecked car and save a life. New extrication equipment is sorely needed. The current equipment is over 20 years old and worn-out parts must be fabricated. If you can help, donations are needed to help purchase the new equipment.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace I was “grandma taxi” last week for my 12-year-old grandson Levi in Matthews, NC. Levi worked at their church VBS and needed a ride home each day at noon and, since both parents work I volunteered. On Thursday afternoon there was the commencement of VBS and I was delighted in watching so many children (about 250) perform songs & skits they had learned in 4 short days! On the way home then I told Levi I “wasn’t needed anymore”; I had done what I came to do.
The next day was Friday and my daughter-in-law had a class to teach of Fulbright Scholars! Daniela teaches at UNC-Charlotte. She asked if I would take their lab Yeti to the dog groomers that day, and Levi said “see grandma, you ARE still needed!” On the way, I dropped Levi off at some friend’s house for a “play date”. Not sure if they still call it that.
Back at their home I grabbed a book and went outside to relax. They have an in-ground pool that I took advantage of while there too.
The weekend was busy at the Jones’ house with friends & neighbors dropping by to cookout and fellowship, and of course Sunday was busy with Sunday school & church and lunch and packing. Three hours after leaving my son’s home I was visiting “Mama Gail” in Cedar Mountain! An hour after that we were at my home. And I brought grandson Levi with me!
Being an accomplished tennis player, Levi is scheduled to play Monday - Thursday at the Brevard Health & Racquet Club. Two hours a day. At least it’s not as hot here in our beautiful mountains as it was in Matthews. It’s good to be “home”.
JULY CELEBRATIONS; Next week I’ll post the July birthdays & anniversaries so if you have one to share please email the name(s) and date to me at email@example.com

Wedding plans are moving along. We were delighted that on Sunday my choir director, John Austin, at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Brevard, agreed to provide music for us. John is an incredible pianist. This will be a treat for all. Thanks, John.
