Brick oven now being built

By GWEN JOHNSON

Go to our Facebook page for announcements and pictures posted after each event, www.facebook.com/ pages/Hemphill-Community Center.

Black Sheep Bakery and good drug free (chemical preservative free) bread is coming.

The brick oven is under construction and we couldn’t be more pleased. We are told by the contractor it will be just a few more weeks. We are looking forward to this new chapter in Hemphill’s long history of good honest labor. You will be invited to come bake your own bread dough. We are excited and looking forward to more community participation than ever.

We will own what we make! (Letcherculture.org)
