Proceeds will go toward the purchase of extrication equipment such as the JAWS OF LIFE.
Fire personnel spend at least 12 hours preparing the pork butts for your eating pleasure. All BBQ is prepared on site in a huge grill with fire personnel monitoring the process. Prior to serving, the meat is pulled by hand from the pork butts by auxiliary and fire personnel. It is hard work. Cold slaw and other dishes are also prepared in advance by the auxiliary for your eating pleasure. We hope you enjoy the results.

CEDAR MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY CENTER
The first Potluck Dinner will be Monday, June 14th. Food and table set-ups, among other protocols, will be used. The most recent NC COVID guidelines allow groups of up to 100 people. Food needs to be on the serving tables by 6:15 pm, dinner starts at 6:30 pm. There will be a presentation by Kent Wilcox starting at 7 pm entitled “What’s the Reason for Reasonover”. Cedar Mountain residents agree that Reasonover Road was named after Reasonover Creek, but the reason for the name of Reasonover Creek is shrouded in folklore about some hermit or law evader who long ago figured out a reason to cross the creek. An extensive search of historical records going back to 1710 has revealed the true origins for the name of Reasonover Creek.
The Annual Center BBQ will be on Monday, October 11th.
There have been inquiries regarding whether there will be a flea market this year at the Cedar Mountain Community Center and a request to have it in August if we do. You may respond to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the flea market if you wish.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
My honey and I are most anxious to have a flea market this year. Combining two households has been a nightmare. A huge amount has been donated to various charities and some things have been sold. You wouldn’t think so if you saw how much stuff there still is. We decided to store some items on the chance there will be a flea market. We have our fingers are crossed.
