Buckeye Recreation Center

The Mistletoe Market was a great success, as reported by Craig Colistra.

Craig has provided me with the following two documents:

1. A list of prices related to the new playground that the Buckeye Recreation Center is endeavoring to build. The list follows this intro. If anyone is interested in donating something for the community use, this would be a great opportunity.

2. An application form for having your name put onto a picket for the fencing. This document is available as a Word document as well. If you prefer the Word document, please click on the website link at the right for Buckeye Recreation Center and request one be emailed to you. Thank you for your support.

Follows is more information on the 12/8 and 12/10 classes as provided by Stacey:

Greetings residents of Beech Mountain,

December 8th, between 2-4,Cynthia Lehr will be teaching a holiday glassware class. The class is free and if your budget is limited you can pick up various glassware at the Dollar Store or Big Lots in Boone. For example, I will be making a container decorated with dog bones and filling it with treats as one of my Christmas gifts. Please call and reserve your spot at the Buckeye recreation center. Below are some examples of the work you can construct.

The following Monday, December 10th, she will also teach a cookie ornament class between 4:30-6. I, in collaboration with Cynthia, have designed these classes in order to provide an artistic and personal gift you can create for your loved ones. Please call with any questions.
