Homemakers will focus on Chimney Rock National Monument Sept. 14

    Special to The PREVIEW
    Joan Ward from the Chimney Rock Interpretative Association (CRIA) will be the guest speaker at the Mountain View Homemakers’ upcoming meeting on Sept. 14.
    Ward will be presenting the fascinating history of Chimney Rock National Monument, and she will describe the role of CRIA volunteers, who work in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service.
    In addition, members of the Homemakers will be voting to select five local nonprofits for a generous donation from this organization. Voting will take place prior to the Chimney Rock presentation.
    We invite all area women to meet at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14, at Community United Methodist Church on Lewis Street. We socialize before we enjoy a potluck lunch provided by members. First-time visitors are not expected to bring food. This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends in the community.
    Our monthly programs this year have been tremendously successful and appreciated. Join us on Sept. 14 if you can.
    Our meeting is taking place at the same time as Loaves and Fishes across the street, so parking will be at a premium. Everyone is encouraged to carpool.
    Mountain View Homemakers is a 50-year-old monthly gathering of area women who are interested in making their lives, the lives of their families and the community more enjoyable. The meetings include lunch and a speaker or activity.
    We meet on the second Thursday of every month. There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman is welcome. No special skills are necessary. If you live in a home, you are a homemaker.
    Call Tozi Rubin at 731-3360 with any questions.
