What a great turnout today! Twenty-three women played the front nine in a game called Low Putts. Event winner: Roz Banks. Low Net: Mary Law. Low Gross: Nancy Waclawek. Everyone had a great time. Remember that next Monday is a best-ball scramble - a ribbon-cutting scramble. And because it's the first of the month, we will get together for lunch across the street at Cedar Mountain Outpost after the round. Registration at 8:30 a.m. Golf starts at 9 a.m. Bring your friends if they are in town for the holiday weekend. We have had several new players join us this season and we'd welcome more. We play friendly golf - making new friends is the whole point. Good scores are nice, too.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

As I write this I’m getting ready to join a few other gourd art enthusiasts in Brevard, to play with gourds! We’ve started a local gourd “patch” and will meet sporadically to show or teach a new method to use on gourds. We are using alcohol ink dyes on a banana gourd and adding elements to make it look like a fish. These will be mounted on a dowel rod that is attached to a base. I call them “Fish Sticks”! If you’re interested in joining our group please let me know by email at:, or email Lisa at:

Lisa is also accepting inquiries about our annual 3-day gourd event in Cedar Mountain, held this year on Aug. 10-12th.


Homecoming at Rocky Hill Baptist Church is scheduled for August 27th. Homecoming begins at 10:00 am with music, a slide show of past homecomings, a memorial of those who passed this past year, and a message brought by a visiting pastor. A huge covered dish lunch follows in the Family LifeCenter next door! Foods can be dropped off there prior to the start of Homecoming. Rocky Hill provides fried chicken.

The Rev. Matthew Jones, from Matthews, NC is visiting here and will bring the message. Matthew actually attended Rocky Hill church through his high school years, leaving for Iraq right after 9-11 in the Army, which he joined upon the completion of college at UNC-Charlotte. Matthew is a licensed Civil Engineer and owner of Jones Civil Design in Matthews, NC. His Masters in Theology and Divinity are from Liberty University. He and his Brazilian wife and their 14-year-old son love visiting our mountains and look forward to seeing everyone on August 27th.
