CMCC FALL PLANTING
Did you know that fall is the best time to plant North Carolina native perennials, shrubs, trees, ferns, and grasses in your garden? Planting in the fall gives time for plants to establish their root systems prior to the growing season. It gives us the opportunity to thin our gardens to optimize a successful spring season. This year it also gives us the opportunity to contribute to the beautification of the garden at the Cedar Mountain Community Center. If you have any plants that you think would work well in the Cedar MountainCommunity Center gardens and would like to donate some in the October time frame. Please contact Deborah Perkins at 885-7878 if you can help by donating plants or in other ways. We want to thank a new volunteer, Debra Shelton, who has been helping with weeding, grooming, and thinning out our plants.
Suzanne Lawson will be moving her exercise classes to the Community Center. Suzanne’s classes are open to everyone and are both free and fun. They meet on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 10 o’clock to 11:30 a.m.

Blood donations are needed for patients requiring surgery, receiving cancer treatments, experiencing traumatic blood loss, and those who have severe burns. The Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue/ Auxiliary holds regularly scheduled blood drives and they are given donation goals by the Red Cross. During their last drive in August, donations exceeded goals! Donors from Travelers Rest and Cliff Ridge in South Carolina, and donors from Cedar Mountain and all the way from Brevard enabled us to meet that goal. Sincere thanks to all individuals who participated in the life-saving efforts of medical personnel. The CMFR Auxiliary’s next blood drive is scheduled for October 21st in the CMFR training room from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Please mark your calendars, register at the Red Cross website.

NOT AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
We have been blessed with amazing weather this trip with only a couple of rain showers. The highlight of the trip was a two-night stay in Salt Lake City. Of course, the Great Salt Lake was a must-see. I was last there when I was maybe 16 years old and swam in the lake then. This time I only waded. I failed to get all the salt off my legs at the outdoor shower and had to finish the job back at the RV. On leaving the area we visited the Salt Lake Desert and salt flats. There is so much wasteland in the West that I’ve read two whole Reader’s Digests and a Real Simple magazine on these stretches. My honey has never been West so he is enjoying every mile.
