Youth Theater Fundraiser
A fundraiser held at Saluda Outfitters on Sept. 7 resulted in raising more than $1,000 for the Saluda Young Acting Krew (YAK). Thanks go to the Heart Pine Band who donated its time, pay and tips to the cause and to all those in Saluda who came out to support this youth effort headed by Dr. Corinne Gerwe. The donated funds will be used toward renovation of a donated building that will serve as a theater in the future. The next play for the YAK is a holiday play to be held at 7 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Party Place and Events Center in Saluda.

Don’t forget that H20 Dreams Paddling School still has some activities going through October. Located out back of Saluda Outfitters, they offer a variety of water activities and courses. Check them out at or call 828-571-0267.
