Mortgage agreement goes up in flames

Forty-one years have gone into making Dogwood Crafters Cooperative of Dillsboro the successful business it is today. And the co-op will set fire to their mortgage agreement from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, at the 11-room shop.

With this completion, Dogwood Crafter’s Cooperative demonstrates its time-honored willingness to cooperate with one another, to make a plan and stick to it, and to do what it takes to accomplish a dream.

A second reason to celebrate is to introduce to the public an addition to the landscaping. Mary Nolan was a member of Dogwood for almost 38 years, and with her passing, the cooperative wanted to commemorate her involvement with Dogwood by creating “Mary’s Garden.” The garden is located just to the left of the building.

The cooperative certainly had a great deal of help in accomplishing their goals and during the celebration those people will be recognized. There will also be the well-known hot dogs by John Faulk and Dogwood’s famous homemade cookies.
