CEDAR MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY CENTER NEWS
Monday night potluck participants discovered a lot of things about garbage and recycling that we didn’t know. After a delicious, nutritious potluck, John Wiseman, a co-owner of the Cedar Mountain Canteen and avid proponent of waste management, conservation, and recycling gave a very interesting and informative talk about what to do with our waste items. We were surprised to learn that what we take for recycling sometimes ends up in the land fill anyway because no buyer could be found. I, for one, will continue to do so in case a buyer has been found for what we recycle that day. We were also encouraged to maintain a compost pile and how to manage it. If you garden, the composted material can be used as fertilizer. Not all of us can handle the work it takes to maintain a compost pile though. One participant warned that bears love to dig into compost piles.
Please check https://www.transylvaniacounty.org/departments/solid-waste for information on what can and can not be recycled.
There will be no flea market this fall. We may consider one in the spring though.

WELCOME BACK DR. HOLLAND Recovering from open heart surgery is no picnic. The pastor of Rocky Hill Baptist Church, Dr. Leland Holland, returned to the pulpit this past Sunday, and was welcomed by all!
FIFTY YEARS MARRIED! On September 8th Don & Judy Patrick (pictured on their wedding day) celebrated 50 years of wedded bliss! What a milestone; not heard of very often. If they wrote a book of their many decades together, before cell phones and Direct TV and electric cars, I’d ask for a copy. There’s a lot of wisdom from sharing their lives for 50 years. Half a century — wow! Congratulations Don & Judy! ANOTHER BIRTHDAY Not on last week’s “celebrations” list is Don Patrick’s birthday on September 22nd. We know he’s over 50, don’t we?
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Big news! My honey and I will celebrate our very first wedding anniversary on Sunday, Sept 18, 2022. We will be up East so we don’t know exactly where we will celebrate. However there will be leftover wedding cake, candlelight and the appropriate beverages even if we are on the roadside.
My honey and I attended the potluck Monday night and were impressed with John Wiseman’s presentation of how to handle and eliminate waste. It brought to mind that when I was growing up we owned about an acre of land in town. Dad would dig a big hole in the ground and our “garbage” went in it and was covered with dirt. (Composting?) When this hole was filled he dug another one. Future archaeologists will be puzzled. We did make trips to the dump on occasion and my sister and I loved it. We were always looking for discarded treasures.
