CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR Thursday 2-3-22
CROCKPOT COOKOFF SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5TH
Time is running out for the Crockpot Cook-off. The Cedar MountainCommunity Center will be hosting a Crockpot Cook-off this Saturday, February 5. Sampling begins at 5:30 pm.
Contestants should have their Crockpot’s plugged in, on low, and ready to serve by 5:15 pm. Any dish that can be cooked in a Crockpot is acceptable, such as soups, chili, desserts, pot roast, BBQ, etc. Cups and utensils for sampling will be furnished. A $5.00 donation is requested. You will receive a ticket to vote on your favorite Crockpot entry. Awards will be presented to the top 3 contestants.
If you would like to bring a copy of your recipe or ingredients, we will display it with your entry. It would be helpful to list ingredients for those who may have food allergies. See you there.
If you have any questions you may call Candy at 843-991-2734.
BLOOD DRIVE at CMFR
Your blood donation is urgently needed. Blood banks are reportedly at a critical low point across Western North Carolina. Elective surgeries are being postponed because the blood has a more critical need elsewhere. Please come and do your part to lessen the demand.
The next blood drive will be held at the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue Dept on Saturday, February 19th between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm. Appointments are recommended.
There will also be blood drives held on April 16th and June 14th.
Attention Cedar Mountain HOAs, the Cedar Mountain Community Center needs to lock in your meeting dates for 2022 before the wedding bookings start conflicting with your request. HOAs, please send an email to email@example.com with your proposed date and HOA contact as soon as possible.
PANCAKE BREAKFAST COMING UP
On Saturday, March 12th there will be a pancake breakfast prepared by the auxiliary at the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue Dept. Serving will begin at 8 am. Donations gratefully accepted.
CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace Not wanting to spend another 3 days in the emergency room I am being proactive; I am scheduled for an outpatient surgery next week at Pardee hospital in Hendersonville. Hopefully, all will go smooth, with no surprises, and I’ll come home to “take it easy” the following week.
Before my procedure, I’ll list the February- birthdays & anniversaries, so if you want yours mentioned please let me know by Monday, February 7th. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
The snow is sticking around still at my house “waiting on another”. How are things in your neck of the woods? Let me or Linda know.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Well, that last round of snow was a doozy but I am feeling sorry for those “up East” who are getting a winter whammy. I was born and raised in Iowa so weather like that was not unusual. I remember my dad having to dig a tunnel from our back door to the garage and my sister and I building an igloo in the yard.
My honey is working on a “winner” for the Crockpot contest. His first try needed “something” more so we are eating it. He will choose a different recipe. He is a good cook so it should be delicious.
Our heat pump developed a coolant leak and we needed to use the emergency electricity for a few days due to the snowstorm. We expect a heftier electric bill next time as a result. We had to do some snow scooping for access but Al, at Heatherly Heating got it fixed in a jiffy. We are thankful.
