CEDAR MOUNTAIN NEWS FOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2020
SPAGHETTI SUPPER FUNDRAISER
Due to the inclement weather, our Spaghetti Supper drive-through fundraiser wasn’t as well attended as we hoped. We want to thank everyone who braved the weather, picked up dinners, and often gave an additional donation as well. We are waiting for pledges to come in and hopefully, there will soon be enough to purchase the LUCAS Chest Compression System. Any donation to the Cedar Mountain Fire/Rescue Dept will be appreciated.
Thanks to everyone who worked hard to make this fundraiser possible.
LUCAS CHEST COMPRESSION SYSTEM
The proceeds of the Spaghetti drive-through will go toward the purchase of a LUCAS Chest Compression System for the Cedar Mountain Fire/Rescue Dept. When a heart attack occurs in a remote location it is nearly impossible to perform adequate CPR over rough terrain especially in remote locations such as the DuPont State Recreational Forest. This device will give consistent chest compressions under any conditions and increase the chance of survival.
CEDAR MOUNTAIN HISTORICAL CALENDARS
The 2021 calendars are for sale at Whistlestop, Creekside, the Cedar Mountain Cafe, and the Hiker and the Hound for a donation of $15. Stop in and get yours now before supplies run out.
The next blood drive will be on October 17th. There will also be a blood drive on December 19th. Blood drives are held between 8:30a and 12:30p at the Cedar Mountains Fire Dept. Those whose lives have been saved by your donations thank you.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
How can it be that summer is gone? Seems like only last week it was spring.
The leaves are coming down like rain and I will need to get help with some yard work soon.
I hope the leaves hang in there till next weekend. A friend and I plan to check out the colors on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is supposed to be sunny which would be nice for photographs. If it is you might see one in the news.
This pandemic has done a time warp on me. I even forget what day it is sometimes. The worst thing was missing an appointment it took me 6 months to get. I need a personal assistant to keep me on track. Ha.
