By Karen Wootton

I hope you saw the eclipse on Jan. 31. It was something to see, and I doubt any of us will be around to see it again.

About 50 people attended the BCVFD general meeting held on Jan. 27. State Rep. Tommy Hardin spoke and recognized Roy Matheny for his many accomplishments and his retirement. Chris Duroy also spoke, as did Robert Chambers and Director Ronnie Ward, district supervisor for FEMA.

Bingo is held on the first and third Saturday of each month at the Buncombe Creek Community Center. Minibingo begins at 6:30 p.m. and regular bingo is at 7:30 p.m.

Librarily Speaking: Asking For CDs, DVDs to be Donated for Art Project

Our summer reading program is in need of old CDs or DVDs for the children to use to make windchimes.

So, if you have any laying around, just drop them by the library.

Also, don’t forget we still need the plastic lids. We will be collecting these until May 31.

February 1946, World War II is over, but the recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Resistance spy.
