6 Bettie J. LaMotte 725-5523 Despite my best efforts to start the column earlier, I failed! It was a very busy week for all of us. Election day has come and gone and I hope your favorite candidate won. It's unfortunate that more people don't take the time to vote. Maybe a national primary would be a way to get people out to vote. I am a poll worker and it was cer- tainly nice to see that we have a number of young people who have stepped up to work the polls on election day. It's a long, tiring day, but somebody has to do it. Steve and Suzette Craun also work the polls. This is a paying job, so if any of you are interested, please con- tact someone at the County Com- mission office. Open House The club's Open House on Sat- urday was a big success. Clay Horton was scheduled to cook the chicken on the barbeque, but he had laser surgery on his eyes and the doctor told him to stay away from that kind of smoke. John Kincaid stepped up and did a great job. As a matter of fact, the half chicken was so good, we had to send Leonard Erickson to the store to get more. Melanie Eisenhart, with helper Sharon Pennington, grated up some delicious cole slaw and Melanie made her now famous baked beans. Everyone enjoyed the food throughout the day. The cake table, manned by Marcia Gosnell, provided homemade brownies which were a hit with the patrons. The club's "white elephant" table with baked goods and plants was a great sffccess. People do- nated lots of little perennials that were grabbed up really fast. Mela- nie Eisenhart had potted up Black- eyed Susan plants and I grabbed a pot very early in the day since I have had lousy luck with seeds. We have also received new T- shirts which are available to any- one living in (or outside) Blue Ridge Acres. We had hoped our "mouse pads" would arrive in time, but that was not the case. In any event, we expect additional items by Memorial Day weekend. It was good to see our neighbors here on the mountain come by to visit with us and support our ef- forts. I didn't know a lot of the people by name, but did have a chance to visit with Ruth Manuel, Buck Piper and Ben Everhart. We also had a chance to meet and visit with Bridget Cates on Red Bud Lane. The Cates family is rather new to the neighborhood and it was the first time she had been up for one of our events. She has a darling little girl who stole the hearts of everyone at the open house. Sharon Pennington and I took a break on Saturday to serve as "al- ternate" delivery people and took Faith Cone a huge bouquet of Mother's Day flowers from son John. Sharon and I wanted to snitch a few from the bouquet. There were so many we thought Faith wouldn't miss just a few. Normally, I would tell you what a a great job the guys are doing at the pool. They are doing a great job, but this time I am going to compliment the wives of the pool workers. These lovely ladies, in- cluding Heidi Nelson, Linda Eaton, Marcia Gosnell, and Beth Heubisch, kindly permitted their 'husbands to work at the pool on Mother's Day. There were lots of workers there on Saturday with a few new faces, including Chip Gallo and Linda Eaton's uncle Johnny who was visiting for the weekend. These guys went through some lemonade on Satur- day. So much so that we had to add lemonade to Leonard's shopping list. The coping tiles are just about finished and most have been placed. It will need to be cleaned, painted and the water added. Frank Gosnell also did a mowing on Sunday morning. We are really going to be cutting it short for the Memorial Day opening, but the weatherman has promised good weather for most of the week. Girl Scouts As the open house was winding down on Saturday afternoon, An- nie Cobb and her group of Girl Scouts were preparing for an over- night camping trip. Annie said the girls enjoyed their trip to Williams- burg, even though they endured one day of rain. This trip was paid for with proceeds of their cookie sale. We also had the chance to see our young people heading offto the prom. We spotted Daniel Nelson in his tuxedo, heading out, running late as usual. Kristen Ainsworth was preparing for the prom as well, but we didn't get to see her. I am sure morn Theresa took lots of pictures.
