Spring has come in this year with beautiful weather and beautiful flowers.

As we are all staying home in order to stay away from the coronavirus, it gives us a chance to work in our yards and do our spring cleaning. We have many ways we can communicate with each other and be safe at the same time. We have email, cell phones, texts, Face Time and Facebook. Use these tools so we don’t become unsocial. Staying safe does not mean we don’t have to be in touch.

Personal Notes

The former Janice Banther of our community, who now lives in Georgia, visited with Doris Waldrop while she was here for a family wedding.

Jenah McCall, grand-daughter of Norma McCall Shipman, has returned home from Arizona after finishing her work on a chain saw crew with the Arizona Conservation Crew. They did work in Arizona, Utah and California.

Betty Patterson was surprised by family and friends for her 90th birthday. Her great niece Anita Merrill gave a surprise birthday party at the Quebec Community Center. Betty has been an active member of our community as long as most of us can remember.

Birthday wishes to Marie Bowker for her 96th birthday and, also to Margaret Chapman Dills.

Our condolences to Carl and Ann Hendrix in the passing of their brother-in-law Denton McNiel, who lived in West Jefferson.

Oak Grove

Baptist Church

All services for Oak Grove have been put on hold until April 1, in following government recommendations. This will be continued as needed. This will include the annual Easter Egg Hunt that was to be held at Lake Toxaway Community Center on April 11. The pastor is recording Bible studies and sermons which are available on YouTube. These can be found by searching for Cliff McNight.

Faith Baptist Church

Services at Faith have been cancelled at this time in following government guidelines. If you follow Faith on Facebook, the Sunday service will be online as well as Wednesday night Bible study.

Club News

When we are able to socialize again, come by the community center and see all the improvements that have been made to the building. A new heating and air conditioning system has been installed, and a new ice maker is in place, thanks to the Lake Toxaway Charities. A complete new floor was put in in memory of Bill Mennuch by his wife Cheri through the Lake Toxaway Charities. She also donated a utility sink for the kitchen. All new chairs were bought after a fundraiser in 2019. Granite countertops were added by a fundraiser that was done in memory of Rue Ayers and Ellen Goulet. In 2018 a grant from the county bought a new back door, new refrigerator, range and microwave.

In 2019, longtime supporter of our community Ellen Goulet, passed and instead of flowers the family requested money go to the community club. A new bingo machine was purchased in Ellen’s memory.

Rance Jones donated a load of mulch for the play area.

A grant from the county for 2019 and 2020 has brought Wi-FI to the building. Coming soon will be a new walkway, a new front door, and handicap accessible doors for the bathrooms. This work will be done this summer. You will be pleasantly surprised when you see the improvements.

A small library was installed at the end of the walk at the large parking lot. Come by and leave or take a book for your at home enjoyment. This was built and given by Ranelle Chapman McCall family.
