ANGEL HOUSE CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT Attention Lake Arrowhead community, yes this means you! Save the date, May 5th 2018. The LALGA and MGA will be hosting the 6th annual charity golf tournament benefitting Angel House of North Georgia. You don’t need to be a golfer to participate, as there are happily opportunities for everyone in the Community to join in helping this worthy cause. Now that you are interested in helping a local charity you would like to know a little bit more about it. Angel House really is our neighbor, located right next door on Sam Nelson Road. Angel House is home to young ladies 12-21 years old. The primary function of Angel House is to teach life skills necessary to succeed. Money and time management, family planning, nutrition, conflict resolution, resume΄ writing and employment skills are a few of the critical teachings provided at Angel House. More information is available on their website at: How can you help? Play in the Tournament: $90 per person includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, tee gift and, who knows, maybe a prize. To register, please call the Lake Arrowhead Pro Shop at 770-721-7902. On the day of the tournament, please bring cash or a check for the entry fee, raffles, and silent auction items. There is a big surprise for the “Pay the Pro” this year. Remember, too, this is a scramble and a charity event. You don’t need to be a great golfer to participate. Yes, it is always exciting to see your name on the leader board but we our primary goal in hitting the links this time around is to help Angel house. Donate to the Silent Auction: You can immediately start working on this point. Donate! Here is where we hope you will get creative. We know there are many talented people living in Lake Arrowhead so perhaps you could make a gift like a basket, jewelry, pottery or other arts and crafts. If not, please consider soliciting your favorite restaurant, pub, hair salon, boutique or other retail vendors for gift cards. Or, just maybe, you have that special something in the attic or the basement that you’ve debated keeping, but that others might treasure. Now’s the chance to use it for something truly worthwhile.

Hole Sponsor: $100 will put your name or the name of a business or organization on a sign on the day of the Tournament.

Checks made out to LALGA may also left at the Pro-Shop The Angel House Georgia Tax ID is : 13-428172 Over the past five years the Lake Arrowhead community has continued to increase total Angel House donations in every year. We fully intend to continue this trend. We started in 2012 by donating just $4000, but the following year we increased the number to $8400. When the MGA joined with the ALGA in 2015 as a cosponsor our donations rocketed up to $15,087, and the following year we hit $17,456. Last year was our best year with an amazing donation to Angel House of $20,411. With your help we can easily and proudly shatter this record. In advance, thanks for your generous donations and for playing in and supporting our Tournament.

COMMUNITY INTEREST shepherd’s hook – h.u.g.e delivery!!!! by Jill Strickland The largest delivery to date was given to our Northside Cherokee Hospital in February. Seventy-seven (77 !!!!) blankets were given to Labor and Delivery, Special Care Nursery and the adult Intensive Care Unit. All types of blankets were created – fleece blankets with crochet trim and fully knitted and crocheted blankets. Sizes were for preemie babies up to full term and then adult blankets for ICU. Our hospital is now delivering 140 babies a month – up by 25 a month since opening last spring. There are 13 beds in ICU for adults. This is MILES of yarn and fabric. 2018 will continue with blankets for the ICU and baby units at the hospital. Scarves are now underway for Knit Your Bit – a WWII initiative for giving to homeless veterans throughout the United States. Other types of articles are in our future. If you can loom, knit or crochet – we have something for you to do. All skill levels welcomed! Please bring your hooks or needles and join Shepherd’s Hook! This is a community group that supports different causes for both the local area and national initiatives (Operation Gratitude, American Heart Association, etc.) They meet at the church on Monday’s at 10am. You do not need to be a member of the church to join. They are looking for people who want to help others by making beautiful creations. Yarn is being supplied by the Lake Arrowhead Church and private donations. Contributions for yarn (or empty your stash!) or financial assistance for yarn is appreciated. Email if you have questions or need yarn/donations picked up.

COMMUNITY INTEREST women’s activity club by Jane Wimmer On Valentines Day approximately 25 Women’s Activity Club (WAC) members met at the home of Marilyn Charles for our traditional annual Game Day. Everyone feasted on five kinds of soup, and salads, breads, and desserts brought by all. Activities included bridge, dominos, Mahjong and a boisterous game of Scattergories. We thank Marilyn for all the work that goes into organizing this event! Four new Lake Arrowhead residents joined the group on this day and the Women’s Activity Club always welcomes new members. This is a low-key, friendly group and a good way for new women in the community to get out, have fun, and meet others. Events are always the second Wednesday in the month. Some months activities are within Lake Arrowhead and others involve “field trips” such as the Christmas tour of the Governor’s Mansion that was arranged by Marian Vroegop and Tommy Simmons last December. Plans for next month are New Orleans Style Bingo on March 14 at the clubhouse with a lunch that will include gumbo and beignets. On April 11 we will host the Reinhardt University women’s a cappella singing group, The Hardt Breakers. If you would like to join us, please send a check for $10 and your name and email address to our treasurer, Janik Leman, 117 Pinebrook Drive, Box # 1185. Announcements of activities are made by email to members. All women in Lake Arrowhead are welcome. For more information feel free to call Jane Wimmer, 770 720-3867.

COMMUNITY INTEREST chicken pot pie soothes the soul by Tommy C. Simmons, an enthusiastic cook I am grateful to report good news from all the medical tests I had in December and January. Through caring friends in Lake Arrowhead and our church, Waleska United Methodist, we felt a lot of strengthening love during the travail. David and I both appreciated the food, flowers, cards and calls. Thank you everyone.

Home Kitchen-Tested Recipe

A comfort dish I just had to get a recipe for was a Chicken Pot Pie from our neighbor, Carol Burton. She was happy to share her recipe, which is adapted from an Ina Garten recipe featured on the Television Food Network. Carol makes a few changes – don’t all good cooks? Here it is:

Carol Burton’s Chicken Pot Pie delivers pleasure as well as sustenance.

CHICKEN POT PIE Serves 4. Adapted recipe is from Ina Garten.

6 chicken breast halves, bone-in, skin-on 3 tbls. olive oil Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 5 cups chicken stock 2 chicken bouillon cubes 12 tbls. unsalted butter 2 cups chopped yellow onions 6 fresh mushrooms, sliced ¾ cup all-purpose flour ¼ cup heavy cream 1 (10-oz.) pkg. frozen peas (2 cups) 1½ cups frozen small whole onions ½ cup minced fresh parsley leaves Frozen pie crusts 1 egg beaten with 1 tbl. water for egg wash Flaked sea salt and cracked black pepper 1 potato, peeled and boiled until tender, then cubed 2 cups medium-diced carrots, blanched for 2 minutes 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet and rub them with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then remove the meat from the bones and discard the skin. Cut the chicken into large dice. You will have 4 to 6 cups cubed chicken. 2. In a small saucepan, heat the chicken stock and dissolve the bouillon cubes in the stock. 3. In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter and sauté the yellow onions and sliced mushrooms over medium-low heat, for 10 to 15 minutes, until translucent. 4. Add the flower and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock to the sauce. Simmer over low heat for 1 more minute, stirring until thick. Add 2 teaspoons salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and heavy cream. Add the cubed chicken, potato, carrots, peas, onions and parsley. Mix well. 5. Remove the pie crusts from package. Roll out 4 pie crusts that are each 8-inches in diameter. 6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 4 ovenproof bowls or ramekins. Divide the chicken filling equally among the 4 bowls. Brush the outside edges of each bowl with the egg wash, then place a dough round on top of each bowl. Trim the circle to ½-inch larger than the top of the bowl. Crimp the dough to fold over the side, pressing it to make it stick. 7. Brush the dough with egg wash and make 3 slits in the top. Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper. 8. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour or until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling hot. Serve immediately. PAGE 24 | MARCH / APRIL 2018

COMMUNITY INTEREST big canoe/north georgia friendship force submitted by Diane Briscoe Big Canoe/North Georgia Friendship Force held the February monthly meeting at IHOP Restaurant in Canton. Jeptha Greer, Speaker and Bent Tree resident, recounted the germination of an idea formulated by our founder, Rev. Wayne Smith, formerly missionary to Brazil, as he invited Governor Jimmy Carter and Mrs. Carter to meet the Brazilian people. In 1973 two hundred Georgians flew to Brazil for 10 days on a chartered plane that also brought two hundred Brazilians back to Atlanta, all to be hosted in private homes. Wayne Smith was delighted with the exchange's success, "This exchange proved what I had already learned. Once a base of understanding exists between people, then things like race, culture, religion and language are less likely to become stumbling blocks. This is what I mean when I talk about people-to-people diplomacy" - From Charlene Terrell's "The Other Side of the Mountain." March 18 is our next regular meeting at 2 pm at Forno Italian Restaurant, 218 Foothills Parkway, Marble Hill. The Program will be St. Patrick's Day Trivia, with prizes. In April, we will meet at Lake Arrowhead: Sunday, April 15th at 2 pm in the Club House Dining Room. We extend a

COMMUNITY INTEREST reading between the wines by Sarah Martin Jones The Hypnotist’s Love Story – Liane Moriarty. New York: Berkley Publishing Group. 2011.

“Every muscle in her body tightened as if she was preparing to be punched. She would cope. It wouldn’t be the end of the world. She hadn’t invested that much of herself. She barely knew the man. For heaven’s sake, he liked country music.” By the time he returns to their table in the restaurant from a quick trip to the loo, Ellen has already used self-hypnosis and was moving on. “She would be over it by Wednesday. Thursday at the latest.” The untypical part of the story, which gives Moriarty’s novel her concept twist, comes from two details: Ellen is a hypnotherapist and Patrick has a stalker. In fact, as the author clues the reader in the opening chapter, the stalker is already a patient of Ellen’s. What follows in not only an entertaining story about modern romance but also an examination of the difficulties of moving on when love, and life, come to an end. Saskia, Patrick’s stalker and his girlfriend from three years ago, is definitely having difficulty moving on. To her, all she’s doing is “stalking her old life” and making sure that Patrick’s son Jack is cared for. That was Saskia’s role for two years– caring for Jack as a toddler and being the almost-wife to Patrick. Rather than being repelled by Saskia, Ellen finds herself wanting to understand this woman better and even sympathizes with anyone who has such difficulty letting go.

Ellen’s friend, Julia, sums up what all humans face: “We’ve all been hurt by someone, but we just have to get on with it, don’t we? That’s life.” In Moriarty’s capable hands, this simple lesson comes packed in a story with enough twists and turns and laugh-out-loud lines that any lover of Jane Austen will be satisfied with the outcome. And for anyone woman who has googled an ex or compared herself to a former lover, this book shows how far a person may go when hurt is deep. My Wine Recommendation Back when Patrick and Saskia were together, they brought home a case of Pepper Tree wine from a visit to the Hunter Valley vineyard. At the risk of upsetting Ellen, I would recommend that she and Patrick pack a bottle of 2017 Pepper Tree Varietal Semillon Sauvignon Blanc into their basket the next time they picnic on the beach in front of Ellen’s house. The blend combines fruit tones of gooseberry and passionfruit with a crisp lemon acidity that has a dry finish. $19 Sarah Martin Jones is a former English teacher, author of Quicksand: A Cautionary Love Story, and a member of the Lake Arrowhead Sip N’ Read book club.

Patrick, too, has difficulty moving on. Colleen, his deceased wife of going on seven years, is the measuring stick by which he evaluates every woman who has come afterwards. “He never grieved,” explains his mother to Ellen. “Men are terrible grievers. Whenever they feel anything bad they just try to stomp it down.” Despite all her self-hypnosis techniques and Buddhist Post-it notes scattered around her house, Ellen, too, finds it difficult to free her mind from Jon, the man who she


The book begins like a typical modern-day romance: Ellen, a thirty-something single woman is on a date with Patrick, a surveyor she met through an internet dating site. It is their fourth date, and when he says those dreaded words, “There’s something I need to tell you,” Ellen’s mind immediately starts to build a defense for the inevitable breakup.

thought would be her happilyever-after. She had adored him. “It wasn’t until after he’d pulverized her heart that she finally noticed he’d never actually adored her back.”

If anyone has wrapped herself in Jane Austen’s writing mantle, it’s the Australian writer Liane Moriarty. Whether it’s her first book, Three Wishes, or her most recent, Truly Madly Guilty, each story delivers a delightful plot propelled forward by a lovable female character. The Hypnotist’s Love Story is perhaps Moriarty at her best.

COMMUNITY INTEREST driving miss daisy submitted by Lee Dunn The recent stage production of “Driving Miss Daisy” at the historic Canton Theatre received strong support from Lake Arrowhead residents. Of note, the plays director, Myrna Feldman, is a Lake Arrowhead resident much of the year. She brought together a strong cast from the Cherokee Theatre Company and whipped them into shape for the 6 day production which ran March 9 – 18. Having heard if this upcoming production last year I offered to assemble a group of classic cars of the timeframe of the play for display in front of the theatre during the productions. The response from classic car groups was sufficient to place two classic vehicles at each of the six performances, led by a strong contingent from Lake Arrowhead. In alphabetical order, so you don’t think one vehicle is better than another, the participants provided information about their car/truck for publication in the program. In addition, they stayed with their car/truck for an hour prior to the beginning of the play and during intermission to field questions and comments about it and to provide specific information to the theatre goers. Lou Aloisio placed his locally recognizable 1955 Chevrolet Series 3100 maroon pick-up truck at the theatre on March 10th while Tom Di Nucci showed his triple white 1961 Cadillac Series 62 convertible on the 18th. My 1957 Cadillac Series 62 four door hardtop sedan in Olympic White over Glade Green was at the theatre for opening night on March 9th. Neighbor Jack Hurley brought his 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray “split window” coupe, in Daytona Blue, for the closing performance, March 18th. And last, but certainly not least, the 1936 Nash Ambassador four door sedan hot rod (Chevy drivetrain, Jaguar rear end and Cadillac interior) of Richard Torch, in custom PPG paint Teal Pearl, graced the theatre on March 16th. We have many fabulous vehicles in Lake Arrowhead and the Cherokee Theatre Company appreciated our support and participation. A publicity shoot was held February 15th with my ’57 Cadillac and the gem of our display cars, a 1949 Cadillac Club Coupe that was featured in the 1988 movie “Driving Miss Daisy” with Dan Aykroyd and Morgan Freeman aboard. This car was on display the first Sunday afternoon, March 11, and is owned by my friend Jay Freeman of Decatur. We all enjoyed the stage production and the opportunity to assist the Cherokee Theatre Company by showing our classic vehicles in downtown Canton in front of the Canton Theatre.
