The newly-formed Mountain Community Orchestra is growing fast. As expected, some sections of the orchestra are growing faster than others. Seats in the woodwinds and brass are pretty well filled but additional experienced string players are urgently needed.
Musicians have a wide range of performance experience, from playing in school bands to professional orchestras. Some musicians haven’t played in years and are experiencing the pleasure of making music again.

Local organizations hosted a pet adoption day event last Sunday at Eddie Lee's Macon Auto Sales on Lake Emory Road. Sunday's event was spearheaded by Kim Lee Stevenson of WNC Large Breed K-9 Rescue and included participation from the Macon County Humane Society and the Macon County Animal Control. The event was deemed the first annual Homeless Adoption Event.
Overall, nine dogs were adopted and two cats were fostered. The Macon County Humane Society will host another adoption day in April.
