The Balsam Grove Community Club was recently awarded $500 by Western Carolina Communities (WCC) for its efforts in serving the community. The club, like almost all organizations this year, has not been able to hold many of our regular fund-raising or social events due to COVID- 19. The money was presented to the club in a virtual meeting, along with recognizing its efforts to boost the census reply rate in the 2020 census count. Seventy communities’ clubs in Western North Carolina participated in the awards and recognition. Many thanks to WCC for its continuing support of community clubs!
God’s Way Food Pantry
We are no longer able to allow after-hours pick-up. The food pantry is held every other Saturday from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. The next food pantry will be held this Saturday. Drive-thru only. If you are sick or unable to come, please call to have someone to pick up for you. Blessings to David, Lydia and staff.
Balsam Grove Playground
The Balsam Grove playground at the community center is open at this time. Just be sure to please practice safety by wearing a mask and social districting and be sure to wash hands before entering the playground and after leaving the playground. Thank you.
Just a reminder, if you have donations for your yard sales, please 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 off 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 884-6247 or any other officer.
Those celebrating an anniversary this week are Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Leonard, Dec. 9; and Mr. and Mrs. Brian Hoxit, Dec. 14. We wish all of them a happy anniversary.
