The FFG Lions Club honors Cumberland County High School senior Cemre Chadwick as October “Student of the Month.” Her Counselor, Leslie Eldridge, selected Cemre to receive one of the monthly awards because of her grades, school and outside activities.
Ms. Chadwick is a member of the Interact Club at school, does a large amount of community service, and works in the school front office where she enjoys contact with people every day. Her other activities include heavy involvement with her church youth group where she carries out a variety of different services. She has experienced a mission trip to Peru that helped fulfill her passion of helping others. Her hobbies include playing the ukulele, painting and drawing.
Cemre has not yet selected a specific college for her advanced education. Her desire is to obtain degrees in business management and human resources before gaining a degree in interior design. Her major goal is to eventually own an interior design business some day.
Cemre Chadwick becomes the third student named so far this school year by the Fairfield Glade (FFG) Lions Club as “Student of the Month.” There will be four students from CCHS, four from SMHS plus two from the Phoenix School to receive the honor during the 2012-'13 school year.
All 10 students and their parents will be invited to attend a special Lions Club dinner in May 2013 to recognize their achievement. An engraved plaque with their name and special month will be presented after a brief introduction to the assembled Lions Club members.
The 10 “Student of the Month” winners will have the opportunity to apply for the FFG Lions Club Scholarship Fund of $6,000. This fund was established to help them continue into their higher education life.

Feeding and counting birds
A heavy mast crop last fall was one sign that led those who use old-time folk lore to predict conditions to warn that the winter of 2013-'14 would be bad. It was a good call. March blasts of arctic air make seeking out the remaining seeds, berries and nuts a matter of survival for wild birds and animals. Insect-eating creatures find food scarcer due to cold, as well.
Bad weather hurts the bottom line, but warmer weather is on the way
As a resort community, much of the revenue generated in Fairfield Glade relies on visitors. So far this year, cold weather has put quite a damper on outdoor activity. Due to the freezing temperatures and snow, January golf rounds recorded 943 18-hole equivalents – about 325 rounds under budget and 528 less than last year.
The Neighborhood Watch Coalition and you
I know you've heard the term "neighborhood watch," but have you given any thought as to what members of a watch coalition do? The first thing that probably comes to mind is that it's a group of very nosey people wanting to find out who you are, what you have, how much you're worth and all the other curiosities associated with people who can't mind their own business. That answer is simply wrong.
