Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club

Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club


The Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club was organized in 1958, an offshoot of the Homemakers’ Club. The club was launched by a group of interested native and summer residents working together to improve the area and to build a better community in which to live.

Through the years, community spirit and enthusiasm have been boosted. Our countryside has become more attractive and roadsides have been improved and beautified. A spirit of fellowship has prevailed through the years.

Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. We have a business meeting, program and covered dish supper. Membership is open to anyone living in Gerton and outlying areas.
