Due to the hot summer weather, as well as busy summer schedules, Beech Mountain Community Club has suspended opening the gym on Tuesday and Thursday nights. While the gym will be closed, anyone who wants to come out and play basketball is more than welcome to use the basketball court on the playground. The gym will be reopened during the fall season.

This summer, there is always something fun and exciting going on at 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. Later this summer, they will offer canning and jelly/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.

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