Hello Friends of the Brasstown Community Center,
Hello February! We have a busy month in Brasstown so the Brasstown Bell Newsletter is a little longer this month. Please check out all of the exciting activities listed below.
Back to Balance Massage and Body Works continues to sponsor acupuncture clinics by Dr. Shi Ying Kuai, O.M.D. from Asheville, N.C. The next acupuncture clinics are scheduled for February 1st and 2nd. There are still a few opening for this clinic. Call Cyndi Singh at 828-644-8425 if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kuai. Acupuncture can be used to improve many conditions in the body, as well as treat muscular and neurological pain. You can learn more at www.itmonline.org/arts/acuintro.htm. The first visit is $125. Followup visits are $85. We are very fortunate to have an acupuncture master coming to Brasstown to treat people in our community.
Our Community Pot Luck Dinner is held every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Brasstown Community Center on Settawig Road. The February potluck will be held on Tuesday, February 18th. Bring family, friends or neighbors and and a dish to share and join us for this wonderful Clay County tradition. It is a great way to visit with others and meet new people in our community.
