A Private Preview for the local communities of Spruce Pine and Burnsville was held at The Cove at Celo Mountain the evening of October 6th, 2009. Merchants, local officials, and friends of Mountain Lifestyle Communities gathered around the Greeter’s Park outdoor cooking area, fire pit, and tents for food, drinks, and live music – followed by tours of our new community. Barbara Webster, Executive Director of the Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina, joined with local acclaimed artist, Rolf Holmquist, to present a gift of appreciation to the owners of Mountain Lifestyle Communities of Western North Carolina. Randy Frederick, Chief Operating Officer, accepted the original Holmquist birdhouse "trashformation" on behalf of the owners. Barbara expressed her deep gratitude to the company for their commitment and connection to the larger community as corporate underwriter of the emerging non-profit, the Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina.
