Bernice Powell, president of the Balsam Grove Community Club, was honored at a surprise birthday party Sunday, March 17, by her daughter Angie Owen and daughter-in-law Misty Powell. The picture of Bernice is from when she was a senior at Rosman High School in a dress she made. A true beauty then and now.

Bread Of Life Food Truck

The Bread of Life food truck will be at the Balsam Grove Community Center every Wednesday from noon until 1 p.m. They will have plate lunches that you can take home with you. This service is available to anyone in the community. So, make plans to come out to the community center on Wednesdays and get your plate lunch to eat.


Just a reminder, if you have donations for our yard sales, contact an officer of the community club to meet you at the community center to put it in the building. Items get ruined if they are just dropped at the door, and then we have to pay to have it hauled off. We appreciate your cooperation. Calls may be made to Bernice Powell at 884-6058 or Carol Gardner at 884-6497 or any other officer.

Playgroup At Balsam Grove Community Center

They have started a playgroup at the Balsam Grove Community Center every Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Melissa Pearl, of Community Playgroups, is heading this up. There will be different activities, crafts, snacks, etc., at no expense to the parents. For more information, email mpcommunityplaygroups@ or call (828) 808-6638.

All you have to do is complete the journey scholarship application from WNC Communities available in the guidance office at RHS.
