The Hurt family was the lucky raffle winners of the beautiful hand painted rocker.

Personalized Rocking Chair Raffle Winners

The Bargain Barn held a raffle for a beautiful hand-painted rocking chair, with a unique Lake Toxaway scene on the top of the rocker. The lucky family to win the rocking chair was the Hurt Family. Thank you so much for supporting the Lake Toxaway Community Center and enjoy many years of rocking away.

Bargain Barn

The Lake Toxaway Community Center Bargain Barn will be open two days each month. Call (904) 557-1898 to make a one-hour appointment to shop, but starting this month you can come out and shop in person two days a month:

•Aug. 28-29 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

•Sept. 25-26 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

•Oct. 16-17 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Masks and social distancing are required. Thank you for supporting the community center.

Closest To The Pin

A "Closest to the Pin" competition will be held at the Riverbend RV Resort, with all proceeds to benefit St. Jude's in memory of a long-time park visitor Harry Kuligofski who passed away this spring. Harry was instrumental in creating the putting green at the campground. Harry is greatly missed by all the folks at Riverbend. He would be happy to know that over $200 has been raised so far this summer. Come out and help them raise more money for such a great cause. Everyone is invited to participate. The cost is $5 for 5 balls. Join them at the entrance of the campground at 1476 Blue Ridge Road every Tuesday at 9 a.m., weather permitting.

Chili Cook Off

A chili cook off will be held at 4:30 p.m., Aug. 22, at the Riverbend RV Resort. Entries need to be at the campground 1476 Blue Ridge Road by 3:30 p.m. The entry cost is $20, with all proceeds going to Lake Toxaway Fire Rescue. Get out your famous chili recipe and help support the community. All are invited to participate.

No Friday Functions

There will be no Friday night functions for the year at the Lake Toxaway Community Center. We really miss seeing everyone on our Friday night events. Please check in on our Facebook page and leave a message to let us know how you are doing. It is hard to not have the events, but what makes it tough is not seeing everyone and getting together and visiting. Hope everyone is doing well and please know that you are in our thoughts. The small building is coming along well and will be really nice for next year, and we hope that everyone will come out next spring for our regular Friday night dinners and music.

Virtual Quilt Show

The Bargain Barn will be open two days a month but by appointment only. New stock is coming in. (Courtesy photos)

We are looking for participants for a Virtual Quilt Show. We will not be able to meet in person for the Lake Toxaway Quilt Group, but I have a feeling there have been quite a few quilts being made by everyone at home. We would like to feature the handiwork of the local quilters. Please send us a photograph of your work or contact us and we will arrange to photograph them for you. Contact [email protected] or go to our Facebook page.

The Lake Toxaway building rental is closed until further notice. For information about the Lake Toxaway building contact Pam Owen at (828) 553-0373. To place information in this article, an email to [email protected]
