Call for Volunteers!

The Town currently has three openings on Boards and Committees. The available openings are for the Board of Adjustment, the Tree Board and the Landcare Committee.

The Town operates, in large part, through the work of volunteers. Be a part of our government process by volunteering for one of these opportunities.

Come to a Party at the PHC!

The Presbyterian Heritage Center on Georgia Avenue is one of Montreat’s most valuable and educational resources. Yet there are many Montreaters and visitors who have little or no knowledge of what the PHC offers! A group of your neighbors is hosting five gatherings at the PHC to “show off” this community jewel. Come and enjoy wine and refreshments, a behind the scenes “backstage tour”, fellowship with neighbors, and even some prizes.

The gatherings are scheduled for February 23, 24, 28 and March 2 and 10 from 4:00 to 5:00pm. Please RSVP to the PHC by calling 828-669-6556 or emailing [email protected] with name, number attending and preferred date. Come learn and have fun!
