Halloween is always wonderful at the center, and this year is no exception. The residents of the center and cottages distributed candy to community children, the Asheville Professional Women’s Lion Club provided eye exams, and everyone dressed up for the occasion! Our sincere gratitude to the McCune Lions, Black Mountain Lions, Asheville Professional Women’s Lions Club, Rutherfordton Lions Club, Lions Nick & Deniece Ogle, Weaverville Lion’s Club, Edneyville Lions Club, Greater Asheville Lions Club, Pisgah Forest Lions Club, Etowah Lions Club, Davidson River Lions Club, Noah Rose, George Webb, Billy McCall, Kim Rice and Lions Jim & Frances Coates for candy donations.

VIP Fishing Our fishermen came back bragging about the number of fishes they caught! The story goes that some of the VIPs caught 8, 12, 15 or 21 fish! So exciting! There’s nothing like an action-packed vacation to help you nestle in for the long, cold winter ahead. Greater Asheville, Davidson River Pisgah Forest, Bryson City, and Etowah.

Bridal Shower our long-time dietary employee Kim Bradley is one of the most incredible cooks I have ever known. And now she is a beautiful bride. The residents and staff enjoyed food, beautiful decorations, gifts and games to celebrate this occasion.

Thanksgiving Banquet Everyone that has volunteered at the center is invited. This event is free to our volunteers, families, residents and staff. It’s a thanksgiving dinner and recognition. This is our once a year opportunity for residents, their families, staff and their families and our volunteers to get together. Bring a covered dish that’s either an entrée, side dish, dessert or salad and have a chance to win $50! The food and fellowship are a wonderful way to launch the holiday season.
