Pea Ridge Community House

At the November 2013 WNC Honors Awards program in Asheville, Polk County’s Pea Ridge Community was recognized for their “No Breakfast, Breakfast.”

Instead of providing time, raw material or money to have a typical all-you-can-eat breakfast each community member made a monetary donation.

Pea Ridge supports the Boy Scouts and stepped up to help two neighbors that experienced house fires. The residents of the community continue to offer an academic scholarship to college students from their community.

Everyone is encouraged to participate, enjoy the fun, and learn new things, the second Thursday of each month, March through November. The community house is located on Big Level Road, Pea Ridge.

The WNC Honors Awards are built on 64 years of history recognizing the achievements of organized communities for their work on behalf of their residents. The WNC Honors Awards Program is an opportunity for community clubs across the mountains to come together to celebrate and receive recognition and cash awards for the work they have accomplished during the year. To be eligible a community must be formally organized with a president and other officers working together to improve the quality of life for all residents.

This year 62 western North Carolina communities participated.
