Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving 2014. The CCAC Guild Inc will have a tree in our booth area to decorate, and one in the booth space next to us: Friends of Animal Services- with ornaments like jazzed up stuffed cats and dogs - Diva blinged up pets.

Gretchen Mitchell will decorate the entrance tree-- New River Pottery owner, extremely talented and beautiful lady -- one of our volunteers will assist her with putting decorations on her tree.

This year the Guild's tree theme is : I'll be home for Christmas. Nadine Miller and Zoe Crane are conducting crafting workshops at the senior center twice a month where Seniors can come in a make ornaments. The seniors are happy to be able to craft and we are getting ornaments for our tree. Caregivers and Hospice conducts this event and everything we put on the trees is a donation to them. Our decorated trees will be auctioned off in their silent auction - they keep the money, the top bidder gets the tree and all decorations.

Featured Artist of the Month

October 2014

Ray and Phyllis Chapman

Ray and Phyllis Chapman presented with passion - their craft. When you show excitement for your creative items, it becomes contagious - we all get swept up and drawn in. Great job !!

Kelly Wright presented the challenge of setting up a business in Jacksonville NC. With all her knowledge of the tax systems, she became overwhelmed when she discovered that there are 700 different types of businesses that are permitted / licensed.

Bottom line when you start a home based business and need to find out the specific permits / licenses specific to the type of business you are starting and need to meet all the requirements - call a toll free number to get the free consultation from the experts. 1-800-228-8443
