Hello Friends of the Brasstown Community Center,
Our Community Pot Luck Dinner is held every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm at the Brasstown Community Center on Settawig Road. This month it will be held on Tuesday, October 16th. Bring children, family and friends,and a dish to share. Come out to share food and fellowship with friends, neighbors, and new people in our community.
Looking forward, we will have the Thanksgiving and Christmas potluck in November, a week early (November 13th) because of the Thanksgiving holiday. Raffle tickets for the beautiful quilt donated by Deanna Skubal will be for sale right up to the night of the Thanksgiving/Christmas potluck; $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
There is no Potluck in the month of December.
We are getting into a little cooler weather here in the mountains so it is the perfect time for the 44th annual Fall Festival held at the John C. Campbell Folk School this weekend (October 5th and 6th). There will be over 200 vendors/artisans of traditional and contemporary crafts selling their beautiful creations, plus demonstrations, music, dancing, pony rides for children, food and much, much more. This is an excellent way to find unique and beautiful gifts for the coming Christmas season while enjoying fall weather in the mountains! Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for ages 12-17, and free for children under 12.
