Welcome to CharlottE Blue Ridge mensa


Upcoming EVENTS


JUNE 22 @ 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Join us for our annual Summer Picnic! This will be held at Latta Plantation Nature Preserve – first shelter (Shelter #1) off the parking lot. Our picnic events will be planned between noon and 5:00 PM, but the shelter is reserved from 8:00AM to 8:00 PM and you are welcome to come in early or stay late!

This shelter is near the paved parking lot, a horseshoe pit, and a SAND VOLLEYBALL COURT. (If you want to get a volleyball game going, please bring a ball. Or a bucket for sand castles.) Hiking trails are also nearby.

We will be serving grilled chicken, hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. Alcohol will be permitted. Chips, fruit, dessert, or a dish to pass would be very much appreciated but not required. If you’re planning on bringing something, please let us know so we can be sure we have a variety of food. A head count will be needed to help us plan for sufficient food, so please RSVP by June 8, 2024. Contact Meghna Lamore at for more information.
