COMMUNITY CENTER PROGRAM
Following the potluck on Monday, July 11th the Cedar Mountain Community Center program will feature Didi Salvatierra, fiber artist, and her Quilts of Valor. A Quilt of Valor is a quality, handmade quilt that is machine or hand quilted. It is awarded to a Service Member or Veteran who has been touched by war. The Quilt says, “Thank you for your service and sacrifice in serving our nation.” Four veterans will be receiving quilts.
FAITH MEMORIAL CHAPEL
Faith Memorial Chapel welcomes folks of all denominations to our services, held on Sundays at 11:00 AM. We meet only in the summer and have no membership roll, so you won’t feel like a guest. Each Sunday, we have clergy from different churches that visit us to lead the service and we are blessed to also have great music to accompany the great message!
This Sunday, Faith Memorial Chapel welcomes The Rev. Dr. Fred Andrea III. Fred retired in 2018 after a twenty-five year tenure as Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Aiken, South Carolina. He has since been active as a supply minister and has begun service as Pastor of Clinton United Methodist Church in Salley, South Carolina. Craig Price will provide wonderful selections of music.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace
BIRTHDAYS: Colton Davis gains a year this month (not sure what “day”). On July 7th I know of 3 that will be celebrated: Sherry Brown, little Jackson Raines, and Adam Pace. Myron Bishop will celebrate on the 8th. Next is Missy Duke, who grows a year older on July 13th, which coincidentally is her wedding anniversary! Smart. Beth Carden never looks older but she will be older on the 20th of this month, followed close behind by Lorrie Smith who gains a year on July 22nd. Sherry’s son Cameron Brown grows another year older on July 25th. Finally, “favorite niece” Rosemary Lee Carter will be celebrated on July 31st. Miriam Pflug will celebrate on July 28th! Happy birthday to all!
ANNIVERSARIES: Clyde & Patty Stahl celebrated another wedding anniversary on the 2nd of this month. How many is that? As stated above, Missy Duke made it easy on her husband Marshall by marrying him on the same day as her birthday: July 13th. Only one day to remember, Marshall! Toney & Joy Murr celebrate on July 19th each year. Two couples celebrate their wedding anniversaries on July 28th: Pastor Leland & Deb Holland, and John & Hilda Riddick. Finally, waiting almost until the last minute, the day is George & Nancy Mayer who were wed July 30th “many years ago”.
Congratulations & Best Wishes to you all!

VBS STARTS SUNDAY
This Sunday, July 10th at 5:00 pm all kids are invited to wear their swimsuits to the left-side yard of Rocky Hill Baptist Church and enjoy a huge Slip ‘n Slide assisted by the Cedar Mountain Fire Department! Kids of all ages are welcome to join in; please remember to bring a towel & a change of clothes. At 6:00 pm the whole family is invited next door, to the Family Life Center, for a hot dog meal.
At 6:30 pm Sunday thru Tuesday kids, aged 4 years through 8th grade are encouraged to enjoy a 3-day Vacation Bible School full of song & dance, Bible lessons, arts & crafts, snacks, and games. This year’s VBS is called “Spark’s Studio”, a Lifeway production. VBS ends at 8:30 each night. To register, or for more information please call Rocky Hill’s VBS director Patty Stahl at (828) 885-2498
Rocky Hill Baptist Church is located at 10811 Greenville Hwy (Hwy 276-S) just 3/10 mile past the Cedar Mountain Fire Department, on the left. The pastor of Rocky Hill church is Dr. Leland Holland. The phone number there is (828)862-5611.
The Cedar Mountain Fire Department braved the hot sunshine this past Friday afternoon as they grilled a full-course chicken dinner outdoors at the Canteen, which is located just beyond the fire department. Corn on the cob was being roasted outdoors as well, with several sides & deserts crafted indoors at this roomy establishment. “We sold out!” Dave Summey stated happily later that evening. Many thanks to all who contributed their time, talent (and building), and donations to this fundraiser for our amazing fire department.
While Linda Packer Young and her honey are traveling you’d think I’d be playing, right? You know, “while the cat’s away”? It just so happens that their vacation also falls on my “Camp Grandma’s” week, so I’m taking these 8 days seriously and getting a lot accomplished around the house with the help of my 8-year-old grandson Cooper. He loves to work; he’s always busy and likes to organize more than anything. Well, he likes outdoor sports more but doesn’t have any competition with me. So organize it is!
After rearranging everything in my refrigerator 2 days ago we tackled a watermelon today, cutting it into rindless chunks, filling 3 bowls. One bowl went to each of our two neighbors leaving us with a very large bowl of this sweet treat. So, everything came out of the ‘fridge again in order to make room for our “keeper” bowl.
Another task Cooper is helping me with is preparing items for Rocky Hill’s VBS arts & crafts section. We set up a work table under my very large carport, with a drop cloth under the table and a disposable one on top. We opened a can of water-based outdoor house paint that had been returned to Lowes (wrong color) enabling us to buy it at cost. Using this paint we covered two dozen 4” tall terra cotta “bugs” that were generously donated for the children to paint. Cooper & I looked up each bug; Praying Mantis, Cricket, Grasshopper, and Ladybug, in order to pick out the colors the children will need to paint them. Each 2-ounce bottled color chosen was shaken, opened, and inspected to make sure it was good to go. Now my art room-slash-dining room needs reorganizing. Don’t tell Cooper!
Oh, and did I mention that 8-year-olds don’t wear out? Hopefully, I’ll get some rest when VBS starts. Not!
NOT AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
We had a wonderful 4th of July visit with family in Illinois. We brought some fireworks in Brevard before we left and were really happy with the display. My grandson loves fireworks and was all smiles as he lit each one. It was great seeing my great-granddaughters again. Great Grandma got big hugs and so did great grandpa, Richard. We were so thrilled. They were such a joy. We took photos of all 4 generations which turned out very well. Photo attached.
The campground we stayed at tonight (Tuesday) has a beautiful pool. Right now we can’t wait to get in it but would be broiled. Its 5 pm Central and 97 degrees with humidity of 100%. I’m waiting closer to sundown. On the road again to my class reunion in Bronson, Iowa in the morning.
