Christmas Open House Social

Our next MHARS Friends meeting is next Friday, December 13, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We are planning to hold a Christmas Open House Social from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. At 10 a.m. we will begin by sharing our special thoughts about Herb Barnette. Please continue to keep the Barnette Family in your thoughts and prayers. We will set up for the Social following our “Herb” time.

We are extending a special invitation to members of the Madison County TDA, Rotary Club, current and former School Board Members, French Broad EMC Board of Directors, Mars Hill Hardware, Town of Mars Hill officials, Darhyl Boone, Madison County Officials, and Retired Teachers. Please share this event with your colleagues and friends.

Our menu is simple: Hot Cider, Water, Ginger Snap Cookies, Clementines, Grapes, and Peppermint Candy. Fatimah and Omar are providing the clementines and grapes. David and Willa Wyatt will provide the cider and candy. You are invited to bring ginger snap cookies.

This will be a great time for us to reflect on our efforts with Our School. We have been going strong for 10 years!


With the winter weather advisory for Friday we will follow the plan for Madison County Schools.  So check the news outlets, Facebook, texts, school messages, etc. early Friday morning.
1.  If Madison County Schools are closed, we will not hold the meeting or the Christmas Open House Social.
2.  If Madison County Schools have a delayed opening, we will meet as planned.
If we cannot hold our meeting and social this Friday, we will plan to hold a New Year’s Social at the January 10, 2020 meeting. At that time we will celebrate beginning another decade of involvement with the Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
