CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR THURSDAY 4-4-24

SHERWOOD FOREST LADIES GOLF LEAGUE CONTRIBUTED

By Nancy Waclawek

Sherwood Forest Ladies Golf League

 

Join us on Monday, April 8, as we start our 2024 golf season. Monday's game is a scramble, and we tee off at 10 a.m. on the front nine. Please be at the clubhouse at least 20 minutes before the shotgun start so that the starters can organize teams and get everyone out on time. Each week, we collect $1 for the game fee, which funds our end-of-season awards in October. League dues are $20, payable to Treasurer Nancy Waclawek (cash preferred). Greens fees are $14 for the nine holes, including the use of a pull cart. Please pay each week inside the clubhouse before the round if you do not have a club membership. After play on Monday, we will gather for our kick-off luncheon at the Cedar Mountain Outpost across the street from the clubhouse. We welcome new members, wherever you live in the county and whatever your skill level. Our season runs through Oct. 14. You can play every Monday or when your schedule allows - no pressure. Contact Sue Wojcik, president of the league, at wojciksue@gmail.com if you have questions. Follow us on our Facebook page. See you Monday morning!

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

Monday was the last day of Easter spring break for most students of the Transylvania County school district.  My grandson Cooper spent several days with me last week, going into my workplace a couple of hours early to get the gardens spruced up before annual flowers are planted at the end of April or early May.  A couple of amazing 6th-grade girls started revitalizing these gardens as a school project, which motivated others to help with the cleanup.  Cooper(shown here with our good friend Candy Gray) worked well together on Monday so Cooper could get his project finished, which was bagging up the leaves & scruff a resident of this nursing home had raked.  Another resident had gathered all the limbs & twigs into a neat pile that Cooper & Candy placed in a big tub.  Altogether Cooper has amassed 5 bags of leaves plus the twig-tub for someone to haul off; any volunteers?  We hope these get moved by the last week in April as they’re in front of the raised beds the residents of the nursing home will use to plant the annuals in.

 

The 2 girls working in this garden for their school project have visited a local nursery or two, and so far have received perennial ground covers and a beautiful bird bath.  These look great!  The girls started a GoFundMe page too, to raise money for items the residents expressed interest in.  These include more seating, birdseed for several bird feeders, and plants including rose bushes for our proposed “Rose Garden”, where 3 knockout roses already exist.  There are expenses for mulch, fertilizer, etc. to bring this garden, first created in 1998, back to life.  Many thanks to these two young girls with such giving hearts!  And to my sweet grandson Cooper and our loving friend Candy who pitched in on Cooper’s last day of spring break.  Mission accomplished!

 

If you feel led to donate to the garden rejuvenation which in turn is rejuvenating many residents at this special nursing & rehabilitation facility in Brevard, please email me (Christine Pace): at chris_p_artist@yahoo.com
