It may be Saint Patty's Day, but the Friends of the Mountains Branch Library aren't cooking up Irish Stew!
They're having a CHILI COOK-OFF!
Saturday, March 14, 12-2
Temple of Jesus Fellowship Hall at the corner of Bill's Creek Road and Hwy 64
If you think your chili has what it takes to win the Blue Ribbon, please enter. If you just want to sample lots of tasty chili, please come! Entry fee for Chefs & Guests is $5.
There will be prizes and raffles. Deadline for entry is March 10. Call the library at 287-6392 for more information.
Mountains Branch Library is very proud that one of our regular patrons, Alexandria (Allie) Anderson, has been awarded the Victor E. Bell College Scholarship. Allie is one of only 14 seventh-graders in the state to receive this prestigious award. The Victor E. Bell, Jr. Scholarship Program was established by the College Foundation of North Carolina to encourage and assist high potential North Carolina students to pursue higher education. The scholarship rewards students with academic ability and promise, who demonstrate above average academic performance, to maintain their scholastic standing and achieve a college degree. Allie and her sister, Vickie, attend Lake Lure Classical Academy and are the daughters of Peggy Anderson.
Too cold to play outside, but plenty of fun inside at the library! Legos are always a great way to use our imaginations!
