2020 Meals on Wheels Check Presentations

BCCWNC representatives presented donation checks of $1,000 each to:
1. Meals on Wheels of Asheville & Buncombe County.
2. Council on Aging for Henderson County – Meals on Wheels program.

Due to COVID restrictions, BCCWNC was forced to cancel our Autumn in the Mountains Car Show for 2020. For more than 20 years the show has raised funds for these local Meals on Wheels charities. In lieu of 2020 show proceeds, BCCWNC members voted to use club funds to make donations to these important charities.

2020 Cabin Fever Drive

June 13 was the perfect day to get our British cars out for some exercise. The route included North Bear Wallow Road east of Hendersonville. It offered smooth pavement with a twisty run up to Bear Wallow Mountain and back down to the apple orchards. 18 cars and 24 members turned out for the event. Just what we needed to relieve cabin fever.

2020 March Madness Drive!

We had a great turnout for this year’s drive with 18 cars and 27 members and guests. The weather was cloudy with moderate temperatures but the rain held off. Our route went from west Asheville into Hot Springs, NC with a stop at Trust General Store & Cafe. Then we headed back along the French Broad River finishing with lunch at White Duck Taco on Riverside Drive in Asheville.

2019 Mt. Mitchell Circumnavigation

Friday, October 18, 2019 was an outstanding fall day for this event with cool morning temperatures and plenty of sunshine.  We started with a back roads drive from the Folk Art Center to downtown Burnsville with lunch at the Garden Deli.  As we turned left off US Hwy 19E onto Main St. in Burnsville, we passed an outdoor art project featuring a 22-foot-tall solar “telescope” with hand-blown glass bulbs.  Please see this link for more details:
Follow the Light
After lunch, our drive headed south to the Blue Ridge Parkway and on to Mt. Mitchell.  Clear skies made for beautiful mountain views in all directions from the top of Mt. Mitchell.
Thank you Tom Young for hosting this event.
