Paradise Cove Community Center upgraded and updated

Board welcomes individuals to buckwheat cake dinner

KNOTTSVILLE—For 35 years residents have been gathering for baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, fundraising dinners and festive breakfasts at the Paradise Cove Community building.

Built by community members on land donated by Ruth Collins, the building has been the site of many memories made. When the structure fell victim to settling lands after the mine made their way underneath, individuals decided they needed to step in and help make needed repairs.

According to Duretha Mayle, Paradise Cove Community Board President, a newer and more modern building was erected in place of the aging and damaged facility. 

“Work was slow at first because of the pandemic, but we were finally able to officially open our doors this past fall,” Mayle shared. “While most of the work, overseen by project manager Josh Pickens, has been completed, we still have a few odds and ends to finish up.”

Not only will guests be welcomed by a beautiful exterior and spacious interior, but the Paradise Cove Community building will also now offer some extra special amenities.

“We have all new appliances, including a gas stove and griddle, refrigerator, ice maker and coffee maker. We are also able to offer air conditioning, as well as heat, so that events can be enjoyed year-round,” explained Mayle. “And with room for approximately 100 people, the new center is the perfect place to host your family gatherings, parties, dinners or fundraisers.”

To help showcase the space, the Paradise Cove Community Board decided to host a buckwheat cake dinner.

“This is the first time being back after being put on hold for a few years, and we couldn’t be more excited,” Mayle voiced.

Head on out to the new Paradise Cove Community Center for an all-you-can-eat buckwheat cake dinner, today, Saturday, April 30, from 4:00-7:00 p.m.

For just $10 for adults and $8 children 5-12, guests can enjoy all you can eat buckwheat or pancakes. 

Mayle revealed that extra sausage patties will be available for an additional cost, and children under the age of five will eat for free.

“Those wishing to attend will need to keep in mind that we are accepting cash only,” Mayle noted. “Come hungry and get ready to enjoy a good old fashioned West Virginia meal! We hope to see everyone there!”

The Paradise Cove Community Center is located at 384 Paradis Cove Road, in the Knottsville area of Taylor County. With ample parking, new amenities and a spacious area, it is sure to be a great location for your next gathering.

“We have plenty of dates available, so give us a call to claim yours today,” Mayle voiced.

Those wishing to utilize the facility will need to call Marge at 304-265-1419 to check on available dates.
