WCU wants native flower back

Written by 

Forget roses. Susan Belcher is hoping for beds of Cullowhee lilies to blanket Western North Carolina in the coming years. 

Belcher — the wife of WCU Chancellor John Belcher — is leading an effort by the Western Carolina University Alumni Association to re-establish the flower in the Cullowhee valley by selling packages of the flower bulbs. The proceeds will be used to support the development of Cullowhee lily flowerbeds on campus and to grow a WCU Alumni Association Scholarship fund.

The packages will be sold through the month of October for $10 each. They may be purchased at Catamount Clothing and Gifts and Tuckasegee Trading Co. in Cullowhee; Bradley’s General Store, Dillsboro Smokehouse, Dogwood Crafters, Hopberry – A Primitive Home Collection, Oaks Gallery, Tunnel Mountain Crafts in Dillsboro; at Bryson Farm Supply, Country Road Farms Nursery & Garden Center, Ray’s Florist & Greenhouse and the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce in Sylva; and at other locations in Jackson County. The bulbs and Cullowhee lily notecards will be for sale before and during the Catamount Homecoming game against Elon Saturday, Oct. 26.

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
