We are very grateful for all our lovely friends who joined us on Friday night to celebrate our Black Sheep Brick Oven Bakery Project. The project will be a much needed revenue stream for Hemphill Community Center and jobs and training for local folks. This project is made possible by a grant from Appalshop and the Letcher Co. Culture Hub.

Ground was broken as the construction crew began digging the footer in the morning on Saturday, Jan 20. Weather permitting it will not be long now. Good bread is coming . . .
