Jason Jones / (

I want to start off by saying greetings to all of our readers. I am hoping that everyone is having a good day and that everyone is safe and staying warm after our large snowstorm that we had last Thursday.

Beech Mountain Community Club, as well as the entire Beech Mountain community, would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of Bianca Stout.Beech Mountain Community News would like to take this opportunity to wish Jeff Biczel a very happy and blessed birthday.

Avery County Shrine Club will be having its monthly meeting on at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28.Beech Mountain Community Center is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday. During this time, the community center offers crafting classes, such as quilting, sewing, making handbags, canning and jelly and jam making classes. Everyone who is participating is encouraged to bring a covered dish for lunch. Our lending library and community closet will also be open, and our gym will be available for walking during this time as well.

The community center also offers jewelry making, crocheting and rug hooking classes at 6 p.m. on Tuesday nights. The community center gym will be open at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays for basketball this winter. It is important to note that this is weather permitting, and that the community center may be closed due to inclement weather. Come on out, and enjoy everything that Beech Mountain Community Center has to offer.
