Summer Gathering

Somersby Park men usually gather every first and third Mondays for breakfast at various Henderson County restaurants. This summer due to the pandemic, the group met at the ponds bringing their own hot coffee, vittles and lots of fun stories to share.

One of Our Own Honored

Congratulations to Connie for being selected 2018 Parade Grand Marshal of the North Carolina Apple Festival.

Connie Babcock

In her own words:   “It’s been a joy for 32 years to be a member of one of the finest groups of people who make our North Carolina Apple Festival happen.  Being the Grand Marshal this year is an honor I will treasure.  I hope everyone will enjoy the apples and fun as much as I do.”

Boston Marathon Extraordinaire

Somersby Park has some pretty amazing residents. Among them is Scott B as he recently ran his tenth Boston Marathon. He is one of only 450 people who has ever completed 10 or more consecutive Boston Marathons. Check out photos with captions below in his own words. Scott makes our neighborhood proud in what has to be a lifetime achievement.

“Ready for the most miserable 3:30:24 of my running career.”

“Damn, these things are getting heavy.”

Somersby Park men gather every other Monday for a breakfast shared with good food, friendship and laughter.  We meet at a variety of morning favorites, always with welcomed arms.   It’s been a neighborhood tradition for years.  Consider joining our community and pull up to the table.


SP Basketball Star

It’s basketball season and the neighborhood cheers for Lauren.  The 6th grader plays point guard for the Henderson Middle School Bearcats. Plenty of games are still waiting to be played as Lauren welcomes her neighbors to come check out the Bearcats.    The Somersby Park resident also plays soccer.  When asked what she likes best about playing basketball,  she quickly responded “defense” but also likes offense giving assists and shooting from the outside.   The young lady plays an aggressive game and looks destined for an outstanding athletic career during her educational years… perhaps beyond.    Here’s a link of photos and video clips from the December 6th victory over Flat Rock.

Here’s the remaining schedule.  Go Lauren!
