FEBRUARY 2015
FELLOW SOCIETY MEMBERS The new year was welcome after the rush of Holiday activities. We had
two, sold-out Sunday Brunches on January 11th and 25th. Together, our
membership growth and regular monthly Event Schedule, have helped us
fill our 32-seat Brunch and 24-seat Dinner service capacity.
I trust our monthly Newsletter is reaching you successfully, and you have
found our new Email format engaging. Remember to checkout our new
Website and Facebook Page. Feel free to forward our Newsletter to your
friends! I have heard that our Cabin is becoming known as the Rocky Ford
Country Club - a welcome compliment and fitting moniker.
I am thrilled to introduce you to Chef Sara Tipton - my first addition to
the BreadWorks Kitchen - a nearby neighbor and former personal chef,
Sara will begin helping me craft and prepare our Dining Events with greater
sophistication (more details on PAGE 2).
Make a February reservation now for a memorable outing at our Log Cabin: Brunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, or an upscale Dinner paired with live music by outstanding jazz singer, Stella Jones (more details on PAGE 2).
Our Events are only open to Ben Franklin Society Members. Associate Memberships ($7.50) may be purchased at
the door. Food service starts promptly after everyone arrives. Remember to B.Y.O.B. - we provide glasses, corkage
and mixers. See you there!

www.CedarCrossRetreat.org
Cedar Cross is a place to reflect,
learn, re-connect with nature,
deepen your spiritual life
and rest.
Whether walking along a winding
trail, watching reflections in a
pond, talking with a friend, or
gaining insight from a retreat
leader, our hope is that you will
find the quiet space you need for
your faith journey.
We can host groups up to 16
overnight. Two spacious
cottages provide quality space
for individuals, couples and
small groups. We offer 1-on-1
spiritual guidance, and support
in creative expression in the Art
Studio.
Louisburg College opened the Tar
River Center for History and Culture
in 2013. The TRCHC works with local
governments, private organizations,
educational institutions, and individuals to develop the Upper Tar
River region's historical and cultural
assets, to foster economic development, and to promote knowledge of
the past. Accomplishments to date
include: an ongoing lecture series; a
column in The Franklin Times, “Tar
River Roots”; research assistance
provided to the Ben Franklin Society
and other organizations; the erection of a Civil War Trails Marker on
the campus of Louisburg College;
and the development of a walking
tour brochure for the Louisburg Historic District (forthcoming).
In 2015 the TRCHC will work with
retired school personnel to develop
lesson plans pertaining to Franklin
County history for use in the public
schools and will carry out an oral
history project on the desegregation
of the Franklin County schools.
The Center’s first annual report, strategic
plan, and other resources are available at:
