I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Alex and Kayla Elkins, who were married this past Saturday, Oct. 6. They had an incredible wedding ceremony, and a wonderful reception afterwards. Alex is my nephew, and I am so happy for him and Kayla, and I know that they will have a lifetime of joy and happiness. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this a truly special occasion.

Come on out, and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal at a reasonable price.
It will soon be time for our biggest event of the year! Beech Mountain Community Club will host its annual Harvest Festival starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Beech Mountain Community Club is having its annual Senior Citizens’ Thanksgiving Dinner and Veterans’ Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 10.

Our menu this year will be turkey or ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, slaw, rolls and lots of homemade desserts. As always this meal is free to all the seniors in our community over the age of 60, and for all of our veterans in our community. We need volunteers to assist in cooking, serving and delivering meals to homebound seniors. If you are interested in being part of this, contact Beech Mountain Community Center at (828) 898-5051, and leave a message. Come out and join us for a wonderful, home-cooked meal.
