TRANSYLVANIA SENIOR GAMES AND SILVER ARTS
We are finally able to participate in the Senior Games again. So I am calling all you health fanatics over the age of 50 to come and have some fun at the Recreation Center on Ecusta Road 828-884-3156. There is a sport for just about every one and a class for those that have a hobby and produce wonderful artifacts. The events start on April 18th with the opening ceremonies and the presentation of the performing arts. The events run through May 4th with the closing ceremonies and medal presentations. At the closing, we all celebrate with a dinner. If you would like to join in I have some applications so call Gillian Hillman at 828-782-3012 or go to the Rec. center and pick up a copy.
For more information please call me or the Rec. center 828-884-3156. Just for those real health and competitive folks, the winners can then go on and participate in the State Games, and winners from there, on to the Nationals.
THE ELVES OF BREVARD
The Elves of Brevard are collecting personal care items and candy to make Easter Bags for all of the residents in the assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in the county. Items can be dropped off at Telco Bank. We also provide cards every month to each of these residents if anyone would like to become a card maker. Visit The Elves of Brevard Facebook Page for more details about either project.
CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
I again have two choirs to sing with. Even though we have to wear masks any time we are indoors at my church (Unitarian Universalist) it is good to be back with the choir. I also participate in the Christmas and Easter Cantatas at Rocky Hill Baptist Church in Cedar Mountain. Both choir practices are on Wednesdays so by Wednesday night I am pretty much sung out. I do enjoy both though.
