CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR THURSDAY 6-8-23
CEDAR MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY POT LUCK
Monday, June 12th. We had a wonderful and exceptional turnout at the last potluck - so much so that folks at the end of the line got slim pickins’. We ask if you could please add extra servings to the dish you bring so no one goes hungry. Food to share must be on the serving tables by 6:15 pm so we can start promptly at 6:30 pm. A presentation titled “Art of Seeing” by Sue Russell Padget will follow. Sue holds a bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She has been teaching, painting and exhibiting art for the last 55 yrs. She is Director of Hemlocks Studio Art Center of Cedar Mountain since 1997.
POP-UP PRODUCE STAND AT THE CANTEEN
The new produce stand, Perra Loco, is from a local, small farm located in Happy Acres, Brevard. They opened Monday to a crowd of folks ready to buy the free-range eggs, fresh fruits, and veggies they brought from their farm. They will be at the Canteen on Mondays at 4 pm.

Each Sunday, we have clergy from different churches that visit us to lead the service and we are blessed also to have great music to accompany the great message! This Sunday, Faith Memorial Chapel welcomes The Rev. John S. Nieman. John currently serves as Interim Rector at St. James Episcopal Church in GreenvilleSouth Carolina. The St. James Choir will provide selections of music.
SHERWOOD FOREST LADIES' GOLF League results for June 5th. Monday’s game was a choker scramble. We had 22 women playing and all hit from the best ball off the tee. The choker then played her ball through. We added a twist where the choker was not selected by the best ball; instead, we rotated the choker in each hole. Winning team: Peggy Baldwin, Deb Hincewicz, new player Karen Kitchen-Laws and Kathy Harris with a score of 63, the best scramble score, and choker score. Runners-up: Georgia Osterc, new player Vicki Roberts, Lois Bollini and Elaine Omann. We welcomed three new players: Vicki Roberts, Mary Law, and Karen Kitchens-Law. Join us next Monday. Registration is at 8:30 am, play starts at 9 a.m. CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
CAT TAIL Not much to talk about this week so let me tell you about the kitties trip. First of all every trip has included up to an hour of yowling for starters. Then they “hide” under the sofa and are quiet. Eventually Buddy (orange tabby) comes out and becomes a nuisance by wanting to lie by my honey’s feet while he is driving. I bought harnesses for them so we could take them outside. Nozee (Tuxedo) was the first to be fitted. I was holding him when I walked outside but when I went to put him down a dog barked and he went ballistic. He was actually shrieking. He managed back out of the harness and hide under the motor home. At least he didn’t take off running. It took a lot of sweet talk to get him out. Harness modification is needed! Another day Buddy managed to get out and he too went under the motor home. I laid down on the ground offering some treats and he finally came to me. Whew. They get another try over the 4th.
