Big Auction

The Cedar Mountain Community Center is having its annual auction on Monday, Aug. 9, to help fund its scholarship program.

Lauryl Meile, of Cedar Mountain, was the lucky candidate who received a scholarship award from the center this year.

Congratulations, Lauryl. Lauryl’s mom has made a donation to the auction to show her appreciation and help fund the scholarship program. Thanks, mom.

Many excellent donations have already been made, including gift certificates from Davidson River Outfitters, Hiker and the Hound, a one-year membership for Friends of DuPont Recreational Forest, gift certificates from Bracken Mountain Bakery, and from other local and Brevard businesses. 

Artist David Brown has donated some of his original sought-after wood creations, to name a few. If you have something you would like to donate to the auction, please contact Deborah Perkins at (828) 885-7878 or Marilyn Compton at (828) 885-7237.

We can pick up your item if needed.  The deadline for donations is July 28th. 

Items of value are preferred.

The silent auction room will be open at 5:30 p.m. for early bidding.  Potluck items need to be on the tables by 6:15 p.m.  Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m.  After announcements at 7 p.m., the silent auction bids will be collected and the live auction will begin.  Following the live auction, winners of the silent auction will be announced.  Bidding on silent auction items can continue until 7 p.m.

Around The House By Linda Young

Wedding plans are coming along.  We now have a pianist and soloist ready to perform.  It’s less than two months away and time seems to be speeding up. 

We will need someone to make our wedding cake.  My BFF Matron of Honor was going to make it as a gift but she decided to fly in from Iowa instead of driving two days to get here. 

She was going to ship her baking supplies, but I told her no, because of the expense. 

Let me know if you can recommend someone preferably in the Cedar Mountain area.  Please call me at (828) 877-5407 if you know someone.  Thanks a bunch.

Thanks for reading the Cedar Mountain News.
