Beech Mountain Community News

Jason Jones / (

I wanted to start off this weeks’ article by sharing some pictures of some the activities that the Beech Mountain Community Club has been involved in this year.
Beech Mountain Community Club will host its annual Senior Citizens and Veterans Thanksgiving dinner this Saturday at the community center. We will begin serving dinner at noon. 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, please contact the Beech Mountain Community Center at (828) 898-5051, and leave a message. Come on out and join us for a wonderful, home-cooked meal.
