Community and Business


April Community Market will be on April 14th at the Old Rock School Gym, on Shady Street in Newland.  We will distribute free produce, dairy products, and dry goods beginning at 11:30 until the food runs out.  We are also looking for volunteers to help pack boxes on that day if you are available.  We will begin packing boxes for distribution at 9:30 that morning.  Come out and help your neighbor!  It is a good day helping those that are in need of food in our community.


Due to the changing weather and forecasted continuing snow accumulations this morning and early afternoon, the Avery County Schools system will conduct an early dismissal today, Friday, February 18, 2022. Newland Elementary will be dismissing at 11:00AM, Avery Middle School at 11:15AM, and all other schools at 11:30AM.
