GOAT LADY DAIRY RECEIVES TWO GOOD FOOD AWARDS

The 176 Winners feted by Alice Waters, Nell Newman, Carlo Petrini and 800 Guests. Grays Chapel, NC . Goat Lady Dairy today accepted two 2016 Good Food Awards during ceremonies honoring the nation's best socially responsible food crafters in San Francisco. The Randolph County maker of goat and cow milk cheese was honored for its LINDALE and PROVIDENCE cheeses. Over 800 people gathered tonight to pay tribute to 176 Good Food Award Winners of 2016. By the majestic Golden Gate Bridge on the San Francisco Bay numerous farmers, chefs, journalists, and activists united to celebrate the exceptional food crafters including luminaries Alice Waters, Nell Newman and Slow Food Founder, Carlo Petrini. “It is very meaningful to us that the judges selected our cheese for fine flavor and recognized our farming and production practices as good for the earth and our community," says Steve Tate, who co-owns Goat Lady Dairy with his wife, Lee. "We have always tried to care for the planet and the people as well as run a good business.  Good food should be produced with good, sustainable methods.” Tate and Alexander Kast, lead cheese maker and sales manager, attended today's ceremony to accept the awards. They will participate this weekend in the Good Food Mercantile and the Winter Fancy Food Show, where they will demonstrate their products for industry buyers. The winners harken from 33 states, having risen to the top amongst 1,937 entries in a Blind Tasting with 203 judges held in September. The highest scoring entries were submitted to a rigorous vetting process to verify they met the sustainability and social responsibility criteria to win a Good Food Awards.  This year’s winners represent the forefront of American craft food, making products that are delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions. As Good Food Awards Founder Sarah Weiner noted in her closing remarks: “Twenty years ago, it took travelling across the globe to encounter something so exquisite that it jolted me into seeing the world with new eyes. Now, you are giving people a taste of how good life can be right here on our own soil…changing America’s definition of Good Food.” The awards recognize the expanded scope of Goat Lady Dairy, which was established 20 years ago.  The company has long been known for its spreadable fresh goat cheese, which is offered in many flavors and formats. Lindale is an aged cow milk gouda with a creamy texture made with specially selected cultures from Holland.  Providence is an aged goat milk cheese similar in flavor and texture to Manchego. Its square shape reflects its origin as a "happy accident," as Tate intended the result to be more like a semi-soft Taleggio-style cheese.  The cheese is named after the township where the dairy is located. Tate credits Goat Lady partners Williams Dairy in nearby Liberty and Lindale Organic Dairy in Snow Camp for the outstanding cow and goat milk used to produce the cheeses. "Our cow milk comes fresh from Williams Dairy, only two miles from our production room," Tate says. "This high quality milk is an essential part of the delicious flavor of our Lindale.  The goat milk for our original recipe Providence comes from our own Goat Lady Dairy herd that grazes on the organic pastures at Lindale Organic Dairy.  We now have the capacity to produce more of both these award winners." Goat Lady Dairy underwent a significant renovation and expansion of its facilities in the past three years. The undertaking converted a dirt-floor barn into a pristine, state-of-the-art production facility with multiple cave aging rooms. The effort, supported by a USDA grant, allowed the company to increase production from about 40,000 pounds of cheese in 2012 to nearly 90,000 pounds in 2015. Its cheeses are available throughout the South from Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, Lowes and many independent sellers. It soon will be offered in Whole Foods' Rocky Mountain region, as well as other national markets. In 2015, Goat Lady Dairy also was honored by the American Cheese Society's annual competition for its Roasted Red Pepper Chevre as well as for original recipe Providence. These awards marked the ninth time Goat Lady Dairy cheeses have been recognized by the national organization. "The Good Food Awards are welcome validation of our work to improve our facilities and make the best cheese possible through sustainable practices," Tate says. "I am confident that Goat Lady Dairy will continue to be a leader in producing outstanding cheese for years to come."

Fulfilling A Dream - Ethan Oakely, Mat Master Most inspiring young athletes think about the future, dreams of possibly becoming a big sports star and maybe getting to display athletic skills in a large sports arena. Ethan Oakley is already achieving some of those goals. At the age of just 13 years old, Ethan recently enjoyed the excitement of displaying his standout wrestling skills at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. As a member of both the NERMS North East Randolph Middle School wrestling squad, and traveling wrestling team known as “The School Of Hard Knocks” out of High Point. Oakley has plenty of experience on the mats. A special preliminary match was scheduled recently at the NC State when the Wolfpack hosted Duke University in a key ACC match. Ethan was selected to wrestle in this match against another young start wrestler of his age and weight class. “I really enjoyed that,” said Oakley, “it was so cool. It was really a different experience, getting to wrestle before so many people.” Oakley admitted he was a little nervous before the match, “But after the match got started I tried to concentrate on my wrestling, “ remakes Ethan. there should not have had much worry, because Ethan took care of business as usual. Although not registering his usual win by pin, Oakley once more proved the better man. Dominating the action from the start, Ethan rolled a convincing 15-0 victory, winning the match on a technical fall. This was no surprise to those who have watched Oakely perform on the mats over the past few years. In his two years as a wrestler for NERMS, Ethan has gone undefeated, rolling to a perfect 14-0 record last season and earning the Most Valuable Wrestler Award at the Randolph County Middle School Wrestling Tournament. There has been no let up this season, as Oakely was still unbeaten when the regular season ended recently. What was even more remarkable than his perfect 11-0 ledger, was the fact that Ethan had won all of his matches on pins. NERSM head wrestling coach Derrick Isley noted, “Ethan is a remarkable wrestler. He has always been a hard worker, a step above - since he arrived here as a seventh grader. Isley went on to say, “Ethan shows great leadership abilities and his hard work with his club wrestling has been a big help.” Oakely states, “ I love wrestling, I have been wrestling since I was in the fifth grade, it the only sport that I compete in.” This season Ethan has been competing in the 126 weight class, although weighing in at 120 pounds. He hopes to defend his title in the county middle school tournament as an 8th grader before taking his talents to PGHS Providence Grove High school next year. Than has gained valuable experience and toned his skills by working with an older brother - who is also a standout wrestler. Nathan Oakely is a top notch wrestler currently at PGHS having finished runner up in the state championship last season. Nathan stormed through the main season last year with a undefeated mark, not losing a match until he was wedged out on points in the state championship finals. Isley points out that Oakely brothers competing against each other helps out both wrestlers, plus Isley adds, “ They both receive strong support from their parents, taking them to matches with their club team in Florida, Virginia and other states.” Isley concluded by saying, “Ethan is by far the best wrestler that I have coached in the middle school level. “ Ethan and Nathan Oakely are sons of Mr Rodney and Melinda Oakely of Grays Chapel.

Its Tax Time - Heres Some Great Info

Just in case you’re wondering, tax season can be pretty dramatic. And it's happening as we speak! The arrival of the W2s, hot off the presses, is creating a lot of excitement for folks!  And those W2s are coming earlier and earlier,   With the internet, many people can just print it and go - to the nearest tax office.  Or print it in the tax office!  Not always, but frequently, there's a big refund at the end of it, many times several thousand dollars worth of refund!  And a big celebration, too!  What should we use our refund for?  A new car?  Car lots are pretty busy this time of year. A trip to Disney?  A resort vacation at a tropical destination? New clothes and a Dooney & Burke handbag?  Or just pay down debt? Now assuming you don't have debt to pay down, here's what I suggest. Take some of that money and go a little wild. Just to let off some steam!  After all, you've been waiting all year for this moment. Have a night out on the town, go to the movies with your family, enjoy a great restaurant you've been meaning to try. And then, do something utterly sensible with the rest of your refund. Put it away! My choice would be to invest it in a Roth IRA. Did you know that if you invest just $2,000 of your tax refund every year, in a Roth IRA earning on average 6%, at the end of 25 years you would have about $110,000 in the bank!  Now, how much did you actually put aside?  Just $50,000 ($2,000 times 25 years). But because your money is working for you to grow itself (compound interest), you have created, or your money has created, an additional $60,000 just by sitting there!   Now, what if you put $3,000 in every year?  You would have close to $165,000 in year 25. $90,000 of that money is compound interest, money earning money!  It's amazing!  What if you left that $3,000 a year in for 30 years instead of just 25?  You would have almost $250,000, most of it because you just let the money sit there, doing what it does best. Awesome, isn't it?   Now, here's the real kicker. The money that you earn in a Roth IRA is tax-free. So when you take that money out at the end of those 25 or 30 years, you don't pay Uncle Sam any tax on it. So you get to enjoy all your money, not just what the IRS says you have left over. Now, as with anything tax-related, there are rules and limits. But for most taxpayers, you can invest in a Traditional or Roth IRA as much as $5,500 assuming you earn that much on your job. And, for those 50 and older, it's $6,500. And you have until April 15 to do so. So, yes, have a little fun with your money, but then put the rest away and let it work FOR you!!  Happy Tax Season, y’all! Story by Beverly Meredith Liberty Tax Service, Liberty, NC

Loving Others, Even When It isn’t Easy By Randy Kelley

This past Monday ( Jan 18), our nation remembered the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his impact on others. One of his famous quotes states, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Those words helped guide people during difficult days when retaliation and revenge appeared to be the only recourse.However, Dr. King understood that only love and light can defeat darkness and hate; acts of darkness and hate only make the situations worse. As a nation, we have seen the results of those actions and understand the power of truth. God, as our Creator, knows that loving others opens the door for them to see light and truth. God opened the door for us to see light when He sent Jesus to the earth to pay the price for our sins at Calvary so that we could be saved and enjoy eternity in heaven with Him. He calls each of us to shine that light to the world through our actions so that everyone can see God’s love for them through us. That’s why He tells us in Luke 6:27-31, “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from the one who begs from you, and from the one who takes away your goods, do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” God knows that our natural response is to respond to darkness and hate with revenge and retaliation, but that doesn’t allow others to see His love for them and it darkens our own soul. By allowing God’s love to shine through us, we become a living testimony for our God and our lives are better for it. Not only are our lives better now, we will also receive a great reward, “but love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great” (v. 36a). What an awesome God that He not only tells us what is best, but then rewards for faithful obedience. You might be thinking, “But you don’t know how I have been treated; that person deserves punishment!” It is true that people do wrong and mistreat others, but they did that to Jesus when they unlawfully crucified him on the cross; yet, He replied, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Jesus showed them love, even when they were killing him. There is coming a day in which Jesus will be judge and every person will have to give an account for what they have done when they stand before Him on His throne. Until that day, He gives to everyone a chance to repent and change. How do people see the difference? Through the lives of believers. If you have never accepted Jesus’ gift of salvation, you can today by admitting that you are a sinner, that Jesus’ work on Calvary pays the price for that sin, and asking Him into your heart as your Lord and Savior. If you are saved, but are not shining His light to others by loving them, you can confess that to God and change. God calls His children to love others, even when it isn’t easy because He loves us, even when it isn’t easy. What person can you impact today with the love and light of Jesus? Your life does matter!

A Cross of Love

By: Andy Clapp Nothing says “I Love You” like a heart-shaped box of chocolates. A slew of red boxes filled with chocolate goodness fly off the shelves as Valentine’s Day approaches. Greeting cards are cut into the shape of a heart, poetically expressing the love we sometimes struggle to put into words. Jewelers also design more jewelry fashioned into the shape a heart, adorned with jewels, touting such a gift as a perfect expression of the depth of one’s love. As Valentine’s Day comes, we know that we have to find that perfect gift to express how much we adore that special person in our lives. What if another shape, another symbol, more perfectly expresses love? What if the truest symbol of love was a symbol of agony, death, and served as the place of the greatest sacrifice the world has ever known? As we celebrate love this month, we look at the greatest expression of love the world has ever known, an unconditional love that is eternal. Such a love is what most search the world over to find but typically look in the wrong places to find this love for which their soul hungers and thirsts. As Paul wrote to the Romans, he pointed out to them how God showed His love to them. Paul wrote, “But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!” (Romans 5:8 HCSB) God not only says He loves us; He proved it. As Christ died on the cross, an exclamation of the love that the Creator has for His creation was made and it resonates still today. Looking at these words, we see how that great love was unconditional as we were sinners yet Jesus bore the cross for every one of our mistakes, every sin we committed. Jesus said, “No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 HCSB) Not only did Jesus say this, He followed through on this teaching as He died on the cross. He served as the example of unconditional love. True love is never truly expressed through the words of a card, the sweetness of candy, nor the beauty of jewelry. True love is never focused on anything that is fleeting, because true love is eternal. Love is beyond anything material as true love is embodied by the nature of God, as God is the definition of love. True love takes the shape of the cross and is evidenced in sacrifice, is unconditional in its nature, and endures eternally. If we truly love others, we long for them to see the work of the cross in our lives and the imprint of the cross on our hearts. As they see the cross in our lives, we are leading them to the cross that will forever change their understanding of love, the place where they will see how deep their Father in heaven loves them. We lead them to the place of undying and unconditional love that is not based upon anything they have done but is solely based upon who Jesus is because He died for them.

SENIOR INDEPENDENCE Home Safety Tips


Use these techniques to make your home a place you can live safely and independently. ·Brighten Up—Check that every room is well lit, and make any lighting replacements where needed. Installing night-lights throughout the house—especially in dark corners and along staircases—can help improve nighttime visibility and prevent trips and falls over unseen objects. ·Clear Clutter—Keep floors and walkways clear of unnecessary items, such as clothes, books, papers and trash. An alteration as simple as shifting the furniture can be valuable for those who may have balance or vision problems. Move any furniture, wiring or other obstructions, and make sure all pathways are clear enough to move freely without fear of harm. ·Get a Grip—Install grab bars and handrails in the restrooms near the shower, bathtub and toilet. Using non-slip mats and placing doublesided tape under rugs can also help minimize slips. ·Open Access—Everything should be easily accessible, including the refrigerator, cabinets, drawers, doors and shelving. Also, place items on the lower levels of shelves for easier reach. Stay Active to Avoid Accidents
 Did you know that daily exercise could help reduce the risk of falls? In fact, being inactive is one of the major risk factors of falls in older adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Don’t let fear of injury keep you from engaging in daily exercise. With your physician’s approval, take part in these activities to help make your fall prevention power greater: ·Flowing and stretching exercises, such as T’ai Chi and yoga, are known to help restore balance and joint flexibility. ·Mild strength training—with and without weights—can help strengthen your muscles, joints and bones, making it less likely that you will fall or become injured from a fall. ·Walking is one of the easiest exercises you can do, and it comes with many benefits, including improved balance, strength and endurance.

Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation Awards $98,362 in Grants Across Randolph County

*$10,000 Grays Chapel Elementary School to increase health and physical fitness of students, staff and community by installing and maintaining a 1/6 mile asphalt walking track. * Challenge Grant – A Challenge Grant requires the recipient to raise the other half of the requested funds before any money is paid out.

Every day, in a variety of ways, the caring staff of Randolph Hospital works to provide care and healing through quality healthcare services. But the hospital’s impact on our community goes beyond the care given within the hospital walls and physician offices. Through grants funded by the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation, local, non-profit organizations across Randolph County are able to provide health and wellness programs that make a difference in the lives of the people they serve.

$4,916.80 Hopewell United Methodist Church to purchase commercial kitchen appliances to support the growth in their community meal outreach program. $2,500 Randolph Community College to host the 5th annual RCC Substance Abuse Forum for Professionals.

For 2016, the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation is pleased to announce that it has awarded 15 health and wellness grants totaling $98,362 – the largest amount ever awarded by the Foundation. This is the 19th year the Foundation has provided funding for health and wellness programs throughout Randolph County.

$7,000 Randolph County Partnership for Children to expand the outdoor learning environment concept to five early childhood programs in Randolph County to start building or expand their current outdoor centers to create rich opportunities for outdoor, active play and healthy eating.

“The announcement of this year’s grant recipients is always an exciting time for the Foundation. But for 2016, with the announcement of more than $98,000 in grants being disbursed, it is even more gratifying to our supporters and contributors to see the funds they have helped us raise be put to work in such a variety of great programs. We’re also pleased to note that we have several organizations from across Randolph County that are receiving funds for the first time from the Foundation, helping them embark on innovative initiatives that will work to improve the health and wellness of our entire community,” said April Thornton, president of the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation. For 2016, The Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation funded grants which will engage volunteers and organizations to motivate our community to make healthy lifestyle choices. The Foundation’s priorities are programs which support at least one of the following focus areas:

$5,000 Randolph County Senior Adults Association, Inc. to maintain and expand present programs in yoga, Tai Chi, fitness, cooking and nutrition education classes. $24,600 Randolph County Wellness Collaborative to continue building a culture of health through coordinated efforts and development of a sustainable infrastructure. $5,000 Randolph Hospital to continue concussion management program for all high school athletes participating in contact sports and expand to cover all middle school contact sports. $2,000 Randolph Hospital to identify individuals age 50+ at risk of incurring a fragility fracture and close the care gap by providing education, screening and prevention measures to reduce fractures, improve quality of life and reduce healthcare costs.

Randolph Hospital – projects that support the mission of Randolph Hospital and its efforts to provide quality health care; Nutrition – projects that benefit nutrition in the areas of education, training and research; Physical Fitness – promotion of healthy living through programs that initiate, expand and improve physical fitness; Substance Abuse – education and prevention programs that ease the transition of becoming free from the health problems associated with abuse of alcohol, tobacco and/or illicit drugs.

$4,200 Randolph Hospital to develop a "hands-only" CPR course to train the public on how to perform this life-saving procedure. $15,000 Town of Ramseur to grade and surface 2,125 feet of the Deep River Rail Trail in Ramseur, in order to open it to the public. “Whether improving the nutritional possibilities for an entire community by planting and maintaining a garden with First United Methodist Church and Communities in Schools or assisting the Randolph Hospital Concussion Management Program to provide middle school athletes in contact sports with testing and education to protect their young brains, these grants enable important community endeavors to succeed,” said Thornton. “Each grant recipient indirectly helps Randolph Hospital fulfill the second half of its mission, ‘foster health and wellness’, in unique ways in the community and across Randolph County.”

“Each year, the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation awards grants to assist with various health and wellness initiatives,” noted Thornton. “Once again, this was a competitive year, with 28 grant requests totaling over $255,000. The grants awarded have the potential to make a tremendous difference in the lives of many, helping to create a healthier community.” The 2016 grants awarded by the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation include: $6,000 Boys and Girls Club - Central Asheboro Club/Trees NC to increase the consumption of fresh vegetables and fruit for 750 youth and adult residents of Asheboro's East Side Neighborhood. $3,897.50 Carl and Linda Grubb Family YMCA to provide accessible cardio equipment in order to give seniors, and those with limited mobility, safe options for exercise. *$3,000 Eastside Improvement Association to provide an easily accessible, free fitness program designed to alter at-risk behaviors linked to obesity and high blood pressure for minorities in Randolph County. * Challenge Grant – A Challenge Grant requires the recipient to raise the other half of the requested funds before any money is paid out.

Volume 13 Issue 2

The Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation was founded in 1995 and awarded its first grants in 1997. Contributions to the Foundation have been a valuable part of the Foundation’s ability to award over $850,000 in grants over the last 19 years.

American Legion Post #81 … More Than Just A Tank Outside Did you know?

Beaver Creek BBQ - Liberty 516 N Greensboro St Ph 622-4208

M-Th 11am-9pm F-Sat 11am-10pm

Whole Ham BBQ Cooked Fresh Never Frozen

Our local American Legion Post #81 was chartered on January 1, 1942. The building at 604 S Greensboro St was constructed in 1945 and in 1966 the Post secured a 105 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M37 Tank to display on the Post grounds. The American Legion is the largest wartime veterans service organization which is committed to mentoring the youth in our community, sponsorship of wholesome programs, advocating patriotism and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. Post #81 has approximately 192 members with 35-40 active members who attend the monthly meetings on a regular basis. Our members include veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon/ Grenada periods, Operation Just Cause in Panama, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Some of our members also volunteer their time to be a part of the Randolph Honor Guard which over the past year have honored Veterans at over 600 Funeral Ceremonies across the county.

Community Involvement

Post #81 sponsors Eastern Randolph American Legion Baseball and participates in National Tournaments. American Legion Baseball has taught our local youth the importance of sportsmanship, FREE WIFI good health and active citizenship. With ties to local Boy Scouting Troops the Legion has been involved in numerous scouting projects as well as the recipient of several Eagle Scout projects throughout the years. Post #81 works closely with area High Schools to select and sponsor a candidate to send to Boys State every year. These young leaders receive an education on the structure and function of federal government. During their weeklong stay at Boys State they participate in the political process from caucus, organization of committees, conventions, nominating and electing a president and vice president. The value of this local program can be summed up in a comment from Liberty’s own Now Serving Flounder & longtime resident Tom Meacham. Shrimp Thur-Sat “This Legion Post is part of my life...in 1964, they paid for me to attend Boy's State at UNC-CH, and that week helped shape (for the better) the rest of my life...thanks again to American Legion Post #81!”. In 2016 the Post #81 Auxiliary will also be sending one young deserving lady to Girls State. Other Community involvement projects include sponsorship to the Liberty July Celebration fireworks, the Asheboro Veterans Day Parade and the Liberty Christmas Parade. At the January Post meeting a check was presented in the amount of $2100.00 to the fundraising efforts to build the Liberty Veterans Memorial & Gardens. This money was donated by Legion members over the year in 2015. The American Legion Post also acts as a venue for local functions from Blood Drives, Fundraising Dinners and Breakfast, Fundraising Dances, Political Rally Meetings, Christmas Parties, Family Reunions and the list goes on and on. The expense of keeping this facility up and running is a challenge as is any business. The Post Members and Auxiliary Members participate in numerous Fundraisers throughout the year to help with this expense and to support our many projects. We ask for your support when these are announced from selling BBQ Dinners, Brunswick Stews, Yard Sales, Raffles, Bake Sales, Plant Sale. New members are always welcome and are encouraged to join us in a spirit of comradeship, fellowship and community service. Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month, with a meal at 6:30pm and the meeting at 7:00pm. The 232 N. Greensboro St. Auxiliary would also like to encourage spouses to attend and join the Auxiliary as we Liberty, NC 27298 continue our service to the community. We also encourage you to visit and like our Facebook pages to get information on events and news: www.libertytireandauto.net Facebook: American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary Post #81

Ramseur Chamber Announces Saturday May 21 Kick Off Concert for the Ramseur Summer Concert Series Public · Festival · Hosted by Ramseur Chamber of Commerce It is our first Concert of the Ramseur Summer Concert Series. This is one you don't want to miss. A high energy Concert. Darrell Harwood knows how to entertain. Who is Darrell Harwood? A hard working common man? A natural born entertainer? Darrell Harwood is both. Darrell was born and raised in the small town of China Grove, North Carolina and was already working as an electrician before graduating South Rowan High School. As for “hard working,” Darrell’s drive and determination earned him a job with Carolina Products, Inc. where he quickly became Lead Production Manager. This same drive and determination carried over to his love of entertaining. He is considered by many to be a very talented and valued member of the community. Darrell’s life as a successful entertainer and singer is out shined only by his first love: being a husband and father. He married his wife Karen in 1996, and they share the joy of their two daughters, Tayler and Sarrah. Nothing is more important to Darrell than his family. Darrell took his father’s “Cool Water Band” name and recruited players with decades of experience and personal ties. These talented performers support the fast-paced, high-energy style that has earned Darrell the reputation of powerhouse performer. Also know as the “CWB” band, this close – knit family of musicians are not only great players, but great friends. Their support resulted in Darrell’s first CD of five original songs written by Darrell and several band members. True to his roots, Darrell always makes an effort to give back to the community through his music. Since that first benefit show for his brother-in-law, Darrell has played several shows every year for charitable benefits. Some shows are for people with special needs and some are for organizations. Darrell has committed to performing every year at Relay for Life and Main Street Missions Food Bank concerts.

American Legion Post #81 Yard Sale The American Legion Post will be having a “Huge Yard Sale” the weekend of the Antiques Festival, April 29 & 30th 2016. This sale will be inside the Legion and on the grounds. The last Yard Sale held at the Post was attended by over 600 people. We are now accepting donations for this sale. 10’ x 10’ Booth spaces will also be available for vendors in a designated area on the grounds of the Legion. Spaces will be $25.00 per day, rain or shine. There will be a limited number of spaces so call Cary at 336-707-8177 early to reserve, they will go fast. All proceeds from the yard sale and booth rentals will go to support American Legion Projects. Contact any of the following Yard Sale Committee members for Donation pick up or more information: Cary McMasters - 336-707-8177 Ritchie York - 336-215-2503 Guy Troy - 336-622-3375 Joe Morgan - 336-622-3720 Gail Morgan - 336-337-5031

So, who is Darrell Harwood? He is your average everyday working man who happens to be an extremely talented singer and high energy entertainer. His personal work ethic and integrity spill over into his music, allowing him to connect with his fans in a very special way. His magnetic personality and easy going ways draw people into his performances. Check out Darrell in person and become a part of the experience

100 Man Project 2015 In Review The 100 Man Project is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) Organization that has a primary goal of providing transportation under our C.A.R.S. program which is short for Community Area Ride Service. We currently provide this service using two vehicles; a car and a handicap van equipped with a lift. This program is offered to individuals who have a Liberty or Staley address or a 622 telephone number and do not have a means of transportation to the doctor or medical facility. A small fee is charge ranging from $5 to $20 depending on where the medical facility is located. C.A.R.S. volunteer drivers have driven more than 50,000 miles and provided more than 1,000 rides since it began service in 2010. I really think it is amazing we are able to do what we do and it is all volunteers. We also sponsor a reading program at Liberty Elementary School which has resulted in students reading over 40,000 books the past 5 years and we also sponsor a free dental clinic each year using the NC Baptist Men’s mobile unit. This past June provided much needed dental care for 37 patients who could not afford a dentist. These included cleaning, extractions, and fillings. The 2015 year was a very successful year for our organization in terms of meeting the needs of the community and in our fund raising efforts to replace or aging handicap van with a newer more reliable vehicle. We had a successful fund raiser along with many donations toward this project as well as receiving two grants; all of which have made the goal of replacing the van a reality. On behalf of the Directors and members of the 100 Man Project, I would like to thank the community, volunteers, those who donated money, and those who provided grants and matching funds for this project. We believe these programs provide a much need service for the Liberty and Staley area and look forward to meeting those needs in the coming year.

100 Man Look Ahead For 2016 For the sixth year in a row, the 100 Man Project, Inc. is sponsoring a reading contest at Liberty Elementary. The contest is school-wide for classes K-5 and will start on January 21st and run through April 30th. The class in each grade level that reads the most books during this period will be awarded an ice cream party at the end of the school year. That’s six ice cream parties featuring Homeland Creamery ice cream. The top reader in each grade level will receive a $30.00 Walmart gift card. In addition to the school contest, the group is also sponsoring a reading contest at the Liberty Library. This year, the 100 Man Project, Inc. has decided to include any elementary aged student in Randolph, Guilford, Alamance and Chatham Counties. This will include homeschoolers also. All a student has to do is check out a book at the Liberty Library and he or she will be entered in a drawing for one of two Amazon tablets, each valued at $100.00 or one of three $30.00 Walmart gift cards. This contest will run through April 30th and is ongoing now. We hope these contests will encourage students to read and create an excitement for books that will last a lifetime. By: Warren Dixon, Project Chairman. 2016 Dental Van Ministry The 2016, 100 Man Project Dental Van is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd at the Liberty Fire Department. Sign-up date for the dental van will begin on Wednesday, March 9th at the Reitzel Community Center from 12:00 to 4:00pm. Fillings, extractions and cleaning services will be offered to low income residents of the Liberty and Staley areas. This year’s clinic will be looking to serve residents who have not attended the Dental Clinic during the past two years. Those who have participated within the past two years will be put on a waiting list.For more information please call Keith Suits at 317-3361, Don Lambe at 622-6950, or Kaffy Reynolds at 622-5844. The C.A.R.S. Project is always looking for volunteer drivers. If you have just one day a month that you can volunteer, we would greatly appreciate you doing so. For more information contact Tommy Meacham at 336-622-1998 or Clima Moffitt at 336-622-5774. The reward will be greater than you can imagine. We are ever so grateful to our loyal donors who have been so generous this year to assist with our fundraiser to replace our aging wheelchair van . Total Rides was 216 with 11,509 miles. We also want to say a big thank you to the volunteers who drive each month for the clients.
