The Easter cantata led by Lenoir Bishop on Sunday was met with vigorous applause after every song. After working for over two months it was a welcome sound for the choir to hear.

Many folks attended from far and wide, some returning to Cedar Mountain after wintering in Florida. We saw some that we hadn’t seen for awhile. It was quite a reunion and celebration.



Sherwood Forest’s celebration of Earth Day will open on Thursday, April 21 with a Nature Nuts presentation featuring Dr. Dave Ellum of Warren Wilson College. Discover Forest Understory Ecology at 7 PM at the Robin Hood Centre.

At noon on Friday the 22nd, gather at the Arboretum with Sherwood Forest Friends. Explore the revived plantings and help install native Paw Paw trees. Studio 276 will host a hands-on kid’s activity at 4 PM to close the day.

The Sherwood Forest Friends’ Summer Series will return in August with a schedule of programs to be announced later.

The plan now is for Sherwood Forest Friends to sponsor a specialty drink at the Outpost during the month of May to celebrate the annual return of the Blue Ghosts. Visit our local hangout, sit outside and sip the Blue Ghost Bubble and enjoy spring!


Come join us for a scholarship fundraiser for outdoor early childhood education! Friends of Pisgah Collective are proud to present West Fork Fiasco at the Sherwood Forest Robin Hood barn from 5-7 Saturday, April 23rd for a donation based fundraiser!!!


Hungry for BBQ? Come on down to the Cedar Mountain Fire Dept. on Saturday May 28th and satisfy your taste buds. The Auxiliary will be preparing a meal of BBQ and all the trimmings. Requested donation is $12.00 per plate or per lb. The BBQ will be ready to serve at 11am and lasts until we run out or until 2pm whichever comes first.

We want you to see what your previous donations have meant so far for the fire department and the community. Extrication equipment, paid for by your donations, will be on display. Your donations will go toward additional needed equipment.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

My little Pomeranian pup, “Rockefeller”, also called Rocky, went for his maiden walk on Main Street in Brevard last week, following all his puppy & rabies shots. His Vet said he’s ready to join all the other dog walkers in town! He did really well. This week he’s going to visit several friends in Cedar Mountain. And speaking of rocks, imagine the surprise I got when going through a box of books that had been in storage since my move 5 years ago. Rocks! Three rocks, each about the size of a baseball. These were part of my Joe’s collection. He would pick up a rock from all our travels. I had no idea he had packed these. It made me laugh out loud! Joe passed a year after our move, but reminders are always popping up. I hope to find more. MAY CELEBRATIONS There’s quite a list of May birthdays, including mine (on Mother’s Day this year). I’d love to add your name to the list, or your May anniversaries, graduations, or other “celebrations”. Please send me your submission by Monday, May 2nd for inclusion in that week’s Cedar Mountain News column. You can email me at: Thank you!

ART CLASSES I was given some adorable terra cotta bugs to offer children at this summer’s free art lessons, to be held on the field next to the Creekside Market. They are about 3-4” tall depending on the bug, and so cute! We’ll use acrylic paints on them. More information when school’s out! If you want to help at these 2-hour art lessons please let me know at: Thank you!

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

I continue to have problems with my computer. Sometimes it takes several minutes to type one word. Therefore I apologize to anyone whose news may not have appeared here this week. My computer “lost” a nearly completed Cedar Mountain News for this week. It just says the file is corrupt and I can’t open it. Therefore I had to start over and probably missed a few things.

On a lighter note, my honey and I stopped for lunch at the Southwest Grill on Hwy 280 Tuesday and look what parked next to us! It was another “Rusty” which was what we call our new to us Jeep. This Rusty had a very advanced case of rust and a good candidate for a Stephen King movie. No rust on our ride though.

Thank you for reading the Cedar Mountain News. Your contributions and comments are encouraged and welcome. We’d like to hear what’s going on if you would like to share. Photos are welcome as well. Please email news and photos to Linda at by Monday evening if possible.
