A Call For Officers in 2018

As Olde Meck approaches the end of the year, we are looking for some of our wonderful members to join the Board of Directors. As a member of the Board, you will help make important decisions to help guide the Society's future, which looks very bright and promising! We are currently looking to fill the position of Recording Secretary, as well as two Director positions. If you are interested, please contact Olde Meck at info@oldemeck.org and someone will get back to you with more details.
 
Even if you can’t commit to serving on the Board, we are always in need of more volunteers to help in many facets of the organization. Find out about these opportunities at the Volunteer tab on our website, www.oldemeck.org.


Family Showcase - George Houston Moore

Shown here are Houston Moore and Mariah McCrary Moore, the Great Grandparents of Olde Meck member, Lou Jean Moore Johnson. Houston and Mariah raised their family in the mountains of Transylvania County in the late 1800’s. Lou Jean has provided some fascinating pictures that show the George Houston Moore family of the 1890’s, and her Grandfather and Father in the mid-1900’s. To see these pictures and more info on the George Houston Moore family, click here.


Monthly Meeting Location Changed

Due to construction at Aldersgate, Olde Meck has changed the location of our monthly meetings. Until the construction has finished, we will meet in the Chapel of the Asbury Care Center, another building on the Aldersgate grounds.
 
You will continue to enter the complex through the guard gate on Willard Farrow Drive. Either ask the gate attendant for directions or follow the instructions here and map shown below:
 
Continue past the guard gate down the hill, but turn right at the sign for Asbury Care Center, before you get to the usual turn onto Cole Drive. Continue straight, past the Continuing Care Center on your right until you come to the second right, which takes you to the circular parking area in front of the building.
 
Enter at the covered front door. The Chapel, where we will meet, is inside the door on the left. Look for the Olde Meck signs to guide you.
