An indoor flea market will be held on Saturday, September 16th, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Cedar Mountain Community Center 10634 Greenville Hwy (276). Please contact Christine Pace at (828) 885-2103 or email chris_p_artist@Yahoo.com. to reserve table(s). Set-up is the day before on Friday, September 15th from noon to 3:00 pm. Your table(s) will be held for you for $15 per table. Table proceeds go toward the Community Center’s upkeep. You may mail your check to Christine Pace at 132 Knob Rd. Pisgah Forest, NC 28768. Or bring a check or cash to Christine on September 15th during set-up. If paying by check please make it out to CMCC or Cedar Mountain Community Center. All profits from your sales are yours!
There will be a table for folks who wish to donate good items for sale rather than taking a table for themselves. Please, no smalls unless they are worth something. No exercise equipment and/or TVs, computers, beds, or rusted items will be accepted for the donation table. Unsold items from this table must be taken to a resale shop afterward and most resale shops won’t accept TVs, exercise equipment, etc.
Sellers are responsible for removing their own items and trash upon closing of the flea market. Keep your prices low so you don’t have to take anything back home with you.
The annual community flea market provides a great time to see friends & neighbors & those “just passing through”, while at the same time selling your “treasures” to someone else to love & cherish.
ROCKY HILL BAPTIST CHURCH PACKED
Rocky Hill Baptist Church, our 148-year-old church, celebrated its 94th Homecoming last Sunday! A true “homecoming” brought many families and individuals who at one time attended Rocky Hill church, or had family members that did.
The visiting pastor for this service was Matthew Jones (Christine Pace’s son) who attended Rocky Hill during his middle school & high school years and throughout college until the Army took him to the Iraq war. He brought a moving message on “The Great Commission” that many commented on afterward. Matthew lives in Matthews, NC now where his wife teaches at UNC-Charlotte. Their son just started high school.
Patty Stahl shared the history of homecomings at Rocky Hill from 1929 to the present and showed slides from the early years of the church.
The choir sang “Precious Memories” with Rev. Butch Skerrett as a soloist. The choir was led by Rita (Skerrett) who grew up in Rocky Hill Baptist Church. The music was strong even with a small choir. Special music from visitor Sylvia Tanner and from an oboe-violin-guitar trio brought the house down!
Jeanne Hayes read the names of those who passed away this past year; always to be remembered. A huge covered-dish lunch was held in the Family Life Center following the service and there was “more than enough”.
Mark your calendar for the 4th Sunday in August 2024, and join us next year! Photo of the original church building, and its current look.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
We continue to prepare for our road trip to California. We took the Infirmary (motor home) to Appalachian RV Repair in Marian, NC a week ago to make sure everything was in order stem to stern. Good thing we did. As it turned out the A/C was bad and needed to be replaced. Thank goodness it was under our extended warranty. A trustworthy A/C will be needed if the heat wave continues into September. The roof needed sealing as well. An owner can do it, but we aren’t climbing ladders anymore. The sofa (love seat) was fixed so that we could easily open it. Now we don’t need to worry about our elderly cat getting stuck under it. Buddy is amazingly agile for his age but has arthritis in his hips. We worried he might not be able to climb out from behind the sofa eventually.
