November Association Meeting

November Meeting Reminder photo

Our November meeting is Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6:30 in the Fellowship Hall (basement) of State Street Baptist.

We will have a speaker this month from God's Helping Hands, a social service and charitable organization located right here in the Avenues. They have done incredible work to help the less fortunate here in Cayce.

In previous years, we have held an food drive to benefit God's Helping Hands, and since the need always seems stronger during the holiday season, we are calling for donations at our November and December meetings.

Please consider bringing one of the following items to be given to God's Helping Hands:

  1. Non-perishable food items
  2. Personal hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.)

We love how our neighbors look out for each other.  Thanks for your participation!

Let us know if there are any questions:

The Cayce Granite Quarry Tour

A number of the Avenues neighbors took a guided tour of the Quarry today and loved the trip.  We spent an hour and half learning how to make little stones out of big rocks and how to stay safe in the process.

As you can see it is a very big hole in the ground.  Some five hundred feet deep and a totally closed operations.  Meaning that the water used is rain and runoff and recycled right back into the operation. No pollution here!  They think that there is  enough granite to last to 2050 at which time there will be a huge lake left for the residents of the area to enjoy.

As you can see our intrepid "Day miners" are dwarfed by the equipment.  These are not your father's Tonka Toys.

We had the opportunity to see a safety film and general description of the operation before going out to the site.

We actually came out with the same head count as we had on arrival.  All in all it was an enjoyable time and we all want to thank the plant head honcho John Overmyer for his generosity and expertise. Now we need to find another trip for the membership to enjoy.  Any ideas?  

Have a great week end.
