The CCPA worked to remove weeds and apply mulch to the entire front of the Alnwick facility. A local nursery in Maryville donated the mulch for the task. CCPA Board member Roy Coada, center, and Paulette Ledbetter, current CCPA Treasurer, on the right, were assisted by Ken Hurst, along with others in applying the mulch. Mr. Hurst is a member of a church group which shares the Alnwick facility with the CCPA. This work was completed in August 2004.
David Ledbetter, current CCPA President, and Richard Anderson, current CCPA Board of Directors member, were among the several CCPA members who provided many hours to sand and refinish the hardwood floors at our Alnwick home. Here they are working on the floor in our CCPA Museum Room.

The Ballad of Cades Cove

In blue Smoky Mountains where yesterday rides,
There’s a cove of green prairies ringed on all sides.
Where fields for harvest once stood ripe in Fall,
Where chestnut trees towered plenty for all.

For decades of seasons they worked the green land,
Toiling and tilling-making a stand.
Through days that were happy and some that were sad,
They loved, sang and worshiped in good times and bad.

The people who moved on from where they once stood
Left fences and homesteads: old brick and wood.
Lingering memories of times that are past
Remain a testament vanishing fast.

Where deer and wild turkey walk freely around,
Where millions of tourist trample the ground,
The echoes of yesterday ring through the air.
And shadows of lifetimes are everywhere.

As the sun lights the cove and noontime draws near, 
Look’ll see them; be still and you’ll hear.
In blue Smoky Mountains where yesterday rides,
There’s a cove of green prairies ringed on all sides.
