As usual, there is a problem that we always face----money. We try to keep costs to a minimum, but there are always taxes to be paid, de-bugging the cabin, the grounds need to be mowed regularly to keep out snakes and rodents, and purchasing items for the reunion. With so few people attending last June, there was very little money donated. This reunion runs off your donations. The cabin exists because of your donations. Please try to send something to help…it is tax free. Some of you are great to send whatever amount you can. Most of our large family sends NOTHING! This is YOUR house too! Please try to help us keep the cabin in good shape. We do most of the work for free, but we need help with the expenses. Please try to attend.  Also, please let me know what we can do to make it more convenient for you to get here. I can help with directions to the cabin, and hotels in the area. My info is ewwinslow@wilkes.net or 336-921-3302 or P. O. Box 303, Boomer, NC 28606.

informal Fall Board meeting

 

Hampton Inn 1-800-Hampton

The Annual Brushy Mountain Apple Festival is one of the largest one-day arts and crafts festivals in the Southeast. The Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club owns, operates, and organizes the event each year. The Brushy Mountain Apple Festival is not just this club's largest fundraiser, but has become a one of Wilkes County's biggest fundraisers. Over 100 civic, church and other non-profit organizations participate in the festival. For many of them, the festival has become the biggest fundraiser of the year. Over 160,000 people visit this festival during the day and it's FREE.

The streets of downtown North Wilkesboro, NC are filled with over 425 arts and crafts, 100 food concessions, 4 different music stages consisting of Blue Grass, Country, Folk, Gospel, and Appalachian Heritage. Cloggers, folk dancers, rope skippers, and square dancers provide additional entertainment venues for festival goers. Appalachian Heritage crafts are highlighted such as woodcarving, chair making, soap making, pottery throwing, and quilting. When walking through the streets of the festival observing and buying lots of the arts and crafts, Appalachian dulcimers can be heard while the smells of the variety of foods are enticing everyone's appetites. Let us not forget the apples, apples, and apples. Local apple growers set up throughout the festival selling their apples, apple cider, and dried apples. After all, this festival also pays tribute to the fruit grown and harvested each fall by apple orchardists from Northwestern North Carolina.

So come join the Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club in the Annual Brushy Mountain Apple Festival this year in downtown North Wilkesboro, NC from 8 AM to 5 PM. The Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club Information Booth located at the intersection of Main and 9th Street will have copies of the Souvenir Program and Guide filled with schedules of music, dancing, locations of exhibitors, food concessions, apple recipes, stories and tales about the community and more. The Wilkes Art Council Juried section will be located on 9th Street.

Pre-festival activities begin with “Apple Jam" at 6:00 PM on Friday night, with "live entertainment" at the Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club’s Brushy Mountain Apple Festival Park. This is located at the corner of 10th and Main Streets. So come early bringing your chairs, family and friends to enjoy a great evening kicking off this year’s Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. There will be a few food vendors set up along with the local restaurants available for dinner.

For more information regarding the festival, contact the Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club at (336) 984-3022, or write at P. O. Box 129, Moravian Falls, NC 28654.

Besides eating, and meeting all the cousins and other kin, the
activities include going up on the mountain to see the graveyard and
graves of Peter Saner, Charles and Sarah Saner Carlton, etc.  The land
the cemetery is on is retained by the family, but the original family
land on Warrior Creek has been divided up and sold.

The surrounding area is beautiful.  Pete and Lael Carlton's house,
across the road from the cabin, looks out over a huge bottom where they
raise cattle and hay.  The hill next to their house is the second best
hang-gliding spot in North Carolina (next to Kill Devil Hill).
Hang-gliders come from all over North Carolina and were there during one
of our visits in October.  Very colorful and a little scary.

The site of the old mill is up the road and although the mill is gone
(the millstones are now benches in front of the cabin) the creek and
rocks are the kids' favorite thing.  They wear bathing suits under their
clothes and after dinner the kids go up there and wade and splash around
(with parents watching, of course).
