Our major fund raising events for each year are the Membership Drive, the Festival on the Square (July), the Silent Arts and Crafts Auction (held in conjunction with the Cherokee Heritage Festival), and the Holiday Tour of Homes in December. We receive Grassroots Grant money from the NC Arts Council to help fund part of our events. Since this comes in matching fund grants, we must supply the rest of the money. We also support the Old Jail Museum, which, though it is in need of upkeep and repair, provides a cultural center for visitors and local residents to enjoy some of Clay County’s heritage. You’re invited to help with the Native Botanical Garden that will be developed this year on the Museum Grounds. This is a huge effort that requires lots of volunteers!
