Blowing Rock Leadership Class Project Update
The Blowing Rock Leadership Challenge Class has almost fully funded the bathroom project for Blowing Rock School.

 If you're a local resident, you've probably visited our wonderful playground and/or field for recreation and understand this need. It will also provide a tourism benefit for the many visitors who use the playground and parking lot. Cash Custom Homes - Realty & Construction is serving as our general contractor, and donations are tax deductible through The Village Foundation of Blowing Rock. They only have $9,500 to go. The project will not begin until it is fully funded. Help the Leadership Class reach their goal of breaking ground this spring! Please consider supporting this project - no amount is too small!
