Community Playgroup

Due to program restructuring and staff training, we want to announce that we will be putting a temporary pause on our Balsam Grove Community Playgroup program, and will pick back up in January 2022. Thank you to all who have attended and supported us, and we hope that you will join us again in the new year – the staff at The Family Place of Transylvania County.

The Bread of Life Food truck is at the Balsam Grove Community Center on Wednesdays from noon until 1 p.m. This is a free meal for everyone. Come out and enjoy your lunch at the community center or take it home with you.


If you have donations for the 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.
