FEARRINGTON CLUBS, GROUPS, AND ORGANIZATIONS
ADOPT A HIGHWAY
Village Residents who participate in the Adopt A Highway program meet monthly (usually on the fourth Saturday depending upon the weather) to remove litter along route 15-501 from Weathersfield to Village Way and continue along Morris road. We meet at the Gathering Place parking lot, distribute bags, pickers and vests and gloves ,if needed. In the late spring and summer we meet at 7:30 or 8:00,depending upon weather and 9:00 during the fall and winter. The leader will make assignments for the volunteers and the team heads out. The pick up usually lasts for a couple of hours, depending on the number of volunteers. Help keep North Carolina and particularly the approaches to Fearrington Village free of litter.

ARTIST STUDIOS AT FEARRINGTON VILLAGE
Artist Studios at Fearrington Village is a group of more than 50 visual artists who live and work in Fearrington Village and Galloway Ridge. We welcome all residents who create art or fine crafts to become a member. Our goal is to promote Fearrington Village as an art destination where artists live and create in a supportive community. Monthly art salons encourage artists to meet, share their artwork, and learn from one another. Events are held throughout the year to promote and sell our artwork. ASFV’s annual open studio tour, held in the Spring, draws visitors from across the state and is a favorite event for local art lovers and their guests. Several ASFV artists open their studios by appointment throughout the year and hold art classes. Check out our website at www.Fearringtonartists.org.

CYCLISTS – FMOB
If you enjoy the comraderie of group cycling, you are invited to join FMOB-Fearrington Men on Bicycles. Despite the name, women are more than welcomed, as are riders from other areas. Our rides last between 1.5 to 2.5 hours and we cover between 25 and 40 miles on country roads. Most important is that we nearly always share an after-ride coffee to discuss life in general. We stop and regroup, if necessary, along the way; NO ONE IS EVER DROPPED OR LEFT BEHIND. Safety is of utmost importance and we try to ride scenic and quiet roads. Most often we start at Fearrington Village, but other starting point are also used. Rides are typically organized on-line the day before and are, of course, dependent on the weather.
For more information contact George Erickcek /firstname.lastname@example.org, (919-200-5821).
DINING FEARRINGTON STYLE
Informal dinners are held two to three times a year on specified dates in host homes for great conversation and fun. This neighbor-to-neighbor project attracts repeat long-time and new Fearrington residents. Volunteer hosts select the entree, coffee and tea, and coordinate guest-provided side dishes, appetizers, salads, and desserts. BYOB is de rigueur to accompany appetizers and dinner. Guests are assigned to hosts based on host dining-table capacity, attempts to accommodate dietary limitations, and mixing guests from different neighborhoods. Dinner events and deadlines for guest signups are announced well in advance in the FHA Newsletter.
