Deep Creek cleanup planned

Written by 

A Deep Creek litter cleanup will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, in conjunction with Make A Difference Day. Volunteers should meet at the Swain County Recreation Park on West Deep Creek Road at 9 a.m.

Volunteers should wear long pants and boots and should bring work gloves, although extra gloves will be available.  In addition, safety vests will be provided. The goal is to clean up West Deep Creek Road from Depot Street downtown to the National Park entrance.

The cleanup is sponsored locally by Love Bryson, the Oconaluftee Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center (JCCCC) and Bryson City Bicycles.

Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. In 2009, more than 3 million people volunteered on that day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns.

For more information about the cleanup call Bryson City Bicycles at 828.488.1988 or visit; Love Bryson at 828.488.6164; or Holly Krake, OJCCCC, at 828.497.8062.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    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.
