Hello Friends of the Brasstown Community Center,
There are lots of activities planned in the Brasstown Community as we head into the holiday season.
The Thanksgiving/Christmas Potluck will be held Tuesday (TOMORROW!) November 14th. Kathy Teems will be cooking the turkeys, dressing, mashed potatoes, etc. but many volunteers will be needed to help set up tables, decorate, peel potatoes and other food preparation, and help with cleanup. If you can help, just come by any time during the day and there will be something that needs to be done. There is no better way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season than with family, friends and neighbors. So bring the family and a pot of food to and share for this special occasion at the Brasstown Community Center on Settawig Road (just east of the Post Office in Brasstown).
Also, please remember that the Shops of Brasstown will hold their annual Christmas Party Celebration on Monday, December 4, 2017, from 4 – 8 pm. It is a wonderful opportunity to find that special hand crafted gift for a cherished family member or treasured friend and it is a great way to celebrate the Christmas season.
There will be an “Olde Folks Party” at the John C Campbell Folk School on December 14th from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. This is a special event that is held each year to honor the Elders in our community. If you are an Elder in our community or want to bring an Elder to the event, please call Kim or Tammy at 828-837-2775 to be put on the list to receive an invitation. All invitations will need to be RSVP so they can keep a head count of how many people will attend and so they have adequate preparations for those in attendance. There will be music, entertainment, finger foods and appreciation of those who attend. There are many holiday events at the Folk School in December which you can check out at: https://folkschool.org/even t.php?event_type_id=15
