Christmas Tree Hunting Time

Marisa, Mary, Annie, Lucy and Yates Pharr happy to have found their 2012 family Christmas TreeMarisa, Mary, Annie, Lucy and Yates Pharr happy to have found their 2012 family Christmas Tree

The Pharr family enjoyed going out on their annual Christmas Tree hunt together. This year, they found one of their most favorite yet, and it was very near camp. A local Green River family opens up their Christmas tree field on what appears to be just on the weekends. They are located on Green River Rd., off of Exit 3 on Hwy. 25, as if you are driving to the Falling Creek Camp entrance. It’s about a half mile up on your right after you get off Hwy. 25.

They are beautiful trees and they say “$25 for any tree you find, no matter the height”. Wow! They also tied it to the top of the car. We can’t help but smile since they are so kind, and they are one of our wonderful Green River neighbors. If you are still hunting for a tree, or if you want to make a family adventure, we highly recommend you pay them a visit. Merry Christmas!

New Trail In Camp

New Trail Around the Upper Lake

We are excited to be building a new section of trail on the upper lake to connect the bridge at the Dining Hall to the lake road adjacent to the steps coming out of the water at the rope swing. This will allow for a complete lake lap for cross country and beginner ride in mountain biking, not mention better access for the fishermen!

Robert Kirby, 23 year staff member at Falling Creek Camp, and Biology Teacher-of-the-Year at Hendersonville High School, had an outstanding Voice Recital Sunday 12/2 at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Hendersonville. Robert is a very talented musician, especially on the piano and guitar.

We have known that he has a beautiful voice and he has been training to become even better. There were many Falling Creek folks who attended this recital to offer their support and hear Robert sing a variety of songs including many classical pieces such as “Ombra Mai Fu” by G.F. Handel and “Stanchen” by Franz Schubert, to popular tunes such as “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, and a camp favorite, “Carolina In My Mind” by James Taylor. He treated us to 10 in all. We were impressed. Well done Robert!
