SATURDAY - MAY 20 - 9 am - Our speaker this month is Dr. Curtis D. White, Sr.,  Chair of the Blue Ridge Community Center (BRCC).  BRCC is a not for profit organization setup to acquire the old Blue Ridge High School.  They plan a community center with events that are specific to the residents of the community and surrounding areas.  The aim is to set up educational opportunities for the area youth such as computer skills, mentoring, reading programs, after school home work centers, and sporting events that may not be available otherwise.  BRCC also hopes to have work and meeting space for other community agencies, including the Sheriff’s office.  Weekend activities could include competitive sporting events to keep the children active and decrease the time spent on vandalism and destruction of our community.  Everything is still in the planning stages, and all suggestions and assistance are welcome.
