Unit Director Corner

The Chefs of Logan Blake are continuing to be busy in the kitchen. Participants will get recipe books with everything they have made so far this year.
We were excited to hit the road for a field trip to Urban Air in Raleigh. Our members enjoyed the flip zone bumper cars, ropes course, climbing walls, battle beam, and obstacle course. It was a great experience for everyone!
We were also honored to host the Annual  Community Turkey Bowl at Armory field and give away free turkeys.
December is wide open with a stop at the Gracious Living Senior Center to give the residents handmade Christmas ornaments and spread some holiday cheer. Logan-Blake will also host a Santa's little helpers Christmas party on Friday, December 16th. Santa will make an appearance, and we'll have hot chocolate, make gingerbread houses, and have lots of FUN.
Just a friendly reminder that all our Units will be closed for the holidays from December 19th thru Tuesday, January 3rd. We hope everyone has a safe and joyous holiday season.

     What's Happening at The Club
It was so wonderful to be able to bring back our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. We couldn't have done it without the help of countless volunteers, Chef T and his staff at Pinehurst Resort, along with Michael Gantt and his staff at Wells Fargo Advisors, our staff, and our Board of Directors. We were so happy to see so many of our families!
Special Thanks to Harris Teeter Pinehurst.
This a beautiful time to walk around Southern Pines and enjoy the beautifully decorated trees. You'll see ours on the corner of Pennsylvania Ave. and N. Mechanic Street. The ornaments were created by the members of our SCC Unit. Miss Edith-Ann and Princess had blast decorating this beautiful tree. Special thanks to The Southern Pines Business Association and JD Contractors, LLC for sponsoring our tree.
