Hello Friends of the Brasstown Community Center,
Covid-19 may have stolen the 2020 Bluegrass Concert series and the Community Center potlucks but it hasn’t taken our community spirit. The day will come when we are past this pandemic and we will all appreciate gathering as a community again, in ways we never did before! Until then please continue to be vigilant about the virus, maintain social distancing (6 feet between persons) and practice good sanitation measures. Face masks are beneficial and protect others in case the person wearing the mask is contagious and doesn’t realize it. We want to protect our elders and members of the community who already have other health issues. May you all stay safe and healthy!
The Brasstown Community Center Education Building is now available for groups of 20 or less. The main building of Brasstown Community Center continues to be closed at this time. No pot-luck will be held in August. The situation will be re-evaluated month by month.
2020 Quilt Raffle
Here it is, the 2020 quilt we are raffling as a fundraiser for the Brasstown Community Center. The quilt was generously donated by Deanna Skubal again this year.
Deanna has been a tireless supporter of the community center and has donated quilts for the last 5 years! We appreciate her artistry, quality workmanship and her generous heart. Thank you Deanna!
This is a queen size quilt that can been seen at Clay’s Corner most days or at any of the fundraising events held at the community center, especially during the summer concerts between May and August. Raffle tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5, and can be purchased at Clay’s Corner.
The quilt is awarded during our Thanksgiving Community Pot Luck in November. You do not need to be present to win. The Brasstown Community Center is a 501.3c non-profit organization – we survive on your donations.
Clay’s Corner is OPEN. Stop by for gas, and essentials. The Saturday morning breakfast at Clay’s Corner has been resumed for those whose spouses like to sleep in on Saturday. Breakfast is served at 8 am.
The Brasstown Farmer’s Market is open; same day and same hours as last year.
The Moss Memorial Library is now offering curbside service
Checklist for Curbside Service:
- Members of the public will not be allowed inside the building.
- Book drops will be open for returns. We will waive all late fees for items returned.
- Place holds on items by calling the library or using the online catalog.
- You will be notified when your items are available and given a time to come to the library. Pickup hours will be Tues-Fri between the hours of 11am-3pm. All items will already have been checked out to you and a date due stamp will be on the book.
A pick up table will be set-up in the front door foyer and a bin for any returns will also be in there. If you return items in the bin, instead of the book drop, bring them in a plastic bag. Your requested items will be in a bag with your name on it. Library materials that have been returned will be put in quarantine for 72 hours for disinfection purposes. We will waive all late fees that occur. All materials picked up by patrons at curbside will have been quarantined and disinfected already. We expect this service to continue through Phase 2 of North Carolina’s reopening plan and we will adjust our services based on new evidence or lighter restrictions. For details, call Moss Memorial Library 828-389-8401.
