Beech Mountain Community News 11.22.12

Jason Jones / (

With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving holiday. Let us take this opportunity to be thankful for all of the blessings that God has given us, and to remember the things that are most important to us, such as family, friends and faith. I sincerely hope that everyone has a richly blessed Thanksgiving.

With the Christmas holiday season quickly approaching, there will be many Christmas events that will be coming up. If you are interested in having these events mentioned in this article, please contact me at (828) 898-4299.

Beech Mountain Community Club is proud to announce that our SurPRIZES with Santa will be back again this year, with our dear friend, Cyclone Brett, serving as master of ceremonies. The date is yet to be determined, but I will update this information as it becomes available.

Beech Mountain Community Club, as well as the entire Beech Mountain community, would like to express our sympathies and condolences to the family of Laura Himmelman.

Avery County Shrine Club will be holding its Christmas party at Times Square Diner starting at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 10.

There are many fun and exciting activities going on at the Beech Mountain Community Center. Beech Mountain Community Club offers craft classes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday. Some of the crafts that you will have the opportunity to learn include quilting, sewing, making handbags and rug hooking. They also offer canning and jelly and jam making classes. Everyone who is participating is encouraged to bring a covered dish. Our gym is open for walking from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our lending library and community closet is open from 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday. They have jewelry making classes available starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Crocheting and rug hooking classes are available starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Line dancing classes are available at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. We also have many new clothing and household items in our community closet. Come on out, and enjoy everything that Beech Mountain Community Center has to offer.

Beech Mountain Community Club needs volunteers for its lending library, children’s library, craft center and community closet. If you are interested in helping us, contact Beech Mountain Community Club at (828) 898-5051. Any donations you can make to our libraries or community closet would be greatly appreciated as well.

If you are interested in reserving the community center for an event, or if you have any events, announcements, birthdays or anniversaries that you would like to see in this article, contact me at (828) 898-4299. 

Please remember to keep those who are sick, as well as those who are going through a difficult time, in your thoughts and prayers.

I hope that everyone has a great week, and may God bless you.
