After Labor Day walls are put up to enclose & protect Faith Chapel until the next year. This is a huge undertaking and has a large congregation of workers & attendees who welcome any & all to come and enjoy this special Chapel-In-The-Woods each Sunday for 11:00 am worship.
CEDAR MOUNTAIN MOONSHINE/STUDIO276 ART&CO.
A beautiful May is blooming all around us and that warm summer air is energizing! Music & Moonshine nights will start back at Cedar Mtn Moonshine/Studio276 on Friday, May 26 from 6-8 PM. It’s a free, family-friendly, live music event every Friday through the end of summer--all you need is your own chair! Sarah Dearbaugh has been busy painting a mural on the side of her building that’s dedicated to Cedar Mountain. It’s packed with little scenes that will take the viewer down a very colorful memory lane! The mural is open for a swing-by selfie anytime. Enjoy!
Thank you to Cedar Mountain Fire & Rescue for donating their retired hoses to form our parking lines! We put them to good use and can already see the benefit of having a little extra structure (and added safety) in our parking lot. Looking forward to another summer in Cedar Mountain with you!

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Hopefully when you read this my honey and I will be sitting on a dock teasing fish with various baits. It’s been a lot of years since we have fished. I am used to an old-fashioned rod and reel, but my honey will be trying his skills at fly fishing. I will be drowning worms while he flings flies. I brought in most of the blossoms from my peonies before we left so we could enjoy them for a few days. They would have been gone when we got home.
