The community fundraiser recently held to benefit Keith and Diane Adams was attend by many. Everyone worked together to help make the event a success and the Blackey Community Center was abuzz with activities, a delicious potluck dinner and an auction, to help raise money for them to start over after recently losing their home in a mudslide.
Keith and Diane were touched by the outpouring of support from their family and friends attending.
Berma Whitaker Matthews has been to Waynesville, Ohio, visiting her brother Olan. They had a good visit and also attended some yard sales and visited others while there. They met former Carbon Glow resident Jack Salyers and his wife, Jackie, to talk old times and catch up with nowadays’ goings-on. Jack loves to see folks from home.
I’m glad Berma had a good trip. She had worked so hard at the Blackey Community Center, as did the others, making sure everything went well for the Keith and Diane fundraiser.
Lyndci and Sadie Gilliam came up from Morehead to spend the weekend visiting Bonita, Jerry, Ila and Tammy Adams, Noah and Liberty Campbell, Don and Coreen Pridemore and others. They attended Blair Branch Church on Sunday and Sadie also came on Saturday evening.
We had a large crowd attending the Union meeting at Blair Branch Church on Sunday and had such a wonderful service. All ministers were well blessed and afterward many stayed to have “dinner on the grounds” as it used to be called.
At Saturday evening’s service, Geraldine brought Burnett Caudill so he could be there for prayers. He has been in the hospital at Pikeville for awhile and everyone was so glad to see him. But sad to see him not feeling well. He is well loved by his family and all that know him and is especially dear to all his church family. Many prayers for healing are going up for him.
Bill and Joyce Adams were both able to attend church and even stayed for dinner. Glad they’re doing better.
The late Eugene and Jenette Adams would have been proud to see so many of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren attending their home church and we were glad to have them.
Robert Halcomb and some of his family recently spent some time at Cherokee Lake, Tenn. Lauren had a good trip and looked cute with her little fishing pole. She keeps Robert and Diane hopping and they love it.
All the spring trees are blooming, but with the rain we can hardly view them at their best.
Don and Coreen Pridemore and I drove to Lexington Thursday for an appointment at the V.A. Clinic and so many beautiful trees were blooming beside the roadway. We made a day of our trip and attended some flea markets and antique malls before heading home.
It’s good to have our truck back. I recently hit a deer at Red Star and have been driving a rental truck while the body shop fixed over $2,000 in damages not to mention how bad it felt to kill the deer.
