Plateau Pursuits March 2010 Calendar of Events for the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau in Western North Carolina
The Ides of March are nearly upon us! It wont be long before the dogwoods are in full bloom, and Western North Carolina visitors are treated to their fragrant aroma and beautiful flashes of white and green just outside their car windows as they ascend the scenic climb to the top of The Blue Ridge Mountains. As the vernal equinox approaches later this month and the snows begin to melt, the people of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau prepare for the return of the busy season by celebrating our unique culture and talents through fine art, culinary skill and good old-fashioned fun. We invite our neighbors from near and far to experience this very special place we like to call the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau, and learn why families have chosen to put down roots here for nearly two centuries. For your convenience, Silver Creek Real Estate Group has compiled the following list of happenings for the month of March 2010. We also welcome you to visit our website to find local accommodations, dining options and the latest listings of available homes & land in Highlands, Cashiers, Sapphire Valley, Lake Glenville and Lake Toxaway, North Carolina. We look forward to seeing you and your family up on the mountain!
