Community and Business

Grab your beer stein and put on your Lederhosen, for Sugar Mountains 30th annual Oktoberfest.

The American Red Cross invites you to the upcoming High Country Disaster Virtual Volunteer Fair.

Since 1979, the Valle Country Fair has been known for superlative handmade Appalachian crafts, homegrown Blue Ridge Mountain music, sweet, silky homecooked apple butter, and raising money for those in need in the High Country. Although conditions in 2020 prohibit welcoming 10,000 fairgoers into the hayfield on Highway 194, members of the Church of the Holy Cross in Valle Crucis, NC, are making hay another hosting a virtual Valle Country Fair!

Medicare beneficiaries are urged to compare and evaluate their current plans and make necessary changes during the annual Open Enrollment Period, Oct. 15 – Dec. 7, 2020.

October is National Long-Term Care Residents’ Rights Month, a time to acknowledge the contributions and sacrifices many long-term care (LTC) residents have made to better our community and to call attention to the rights of residents in long-term care facilities.
