Our Venue

Companion peaks at Crowders Mountain State Park - The Pinnacle and Crowders Mountain - offer challenging hikes, towering cliffs, and 25-mile views of the surrounding piedmont.  Eleven trails range from pastoral to strenuous, including the Ridgeline Trail, which links to Kings Mountain State Park and Kings Mountain National Military Park in South Carolina.  Backcountry camping is featured with individual sites approximately a mile from parking areas.  The rugged terrain of Crowders Mountain lends itself to rock climbing and bouldering with a permit in designated areas.  A visitor center with museum-quality exhibits offers regular interpretive programs.

President's Message


Hello Ladies,

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner.  Christmas means different things to each of us.  It is a time of giving to those less fortunate. The Upper Cervical Center has partnered with New Friends and Bright Blessings to provide gifts for children in need.  There were 140 angels put on a Christmas tree at Dr. Drury’s office.  When I was there on Monday, there were only about ten gifts still waiting to be filled.  Dr. Drury’s patients have been wonderful at giving gifts for this great organization.

Unfortunately, not much is going on for the month of January.  We had problems getting a location for our Monthly Luncheon; hence there will not be one in January.  This was a unanimous Board decision.

It has been a sad year with several of our members passing away.  Our most recent was Alice Russell, who was  a long standing member of New Friends.

I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Roll on 2021.  I am pretty certain that most of us want to put 2020 behind us.
