Blackey Community Center to host bazaar


Congratulations to Jean Hampton and Ella Mae Fugate on the arrival of a new great-grandson.

Word has it that Jeffrey Darrel and Kay are on cloud nine to have another grandbaby, and Jeff has already had him over at his garage in London. Best wishes to the parents a new baby.

Emma Amburgey has been on a trip to Savannah, Ga., with her family. They have been home for a week or so. Hope they had a good trip.

Don, Coreen, K. P. Pridemore and I drove down to Somerset to check on Mom’s brother- in- law, Vince McCrarey, who has been in the hospital there. We missed seeing Juanita, who had just gone home from the hospital before we arrived.

Vince and Juanita’s daughter, Alma, had been there with them last week, and after going back home to Dayton, she ended up in the hospital, too. We hope she and Vince are feeling better.

Get well wishes to Wendell Calhoun, Laramie Adams, Ronnie Ball and Anna Bell Wright, who are just a few neighbors and friends who are having health problems.

Joyce Adams is doing well after having outpatient therapy last week, but Bill took fall at home and is taking it easy for a while.

The Good News Gospel Church had singing and refreshments on Saturday evening at the church on Perkins Branch.

It’s hard to think of how many miners have been laid off. Our prayers are with them and their families.

Verlin Breeding got to come home after his recent fall and is recovering at home. His children are taking care of him at night and day until he gets back to walking better.

Viola ‘Buggy’ Adams’s family had her a birthday party last Sunday at Letcher Manor. She’s a sweet lady and I hope she had a nice time with her family and friends to wish her a happy birthday. Her birthday was Tuesday.

The Blackey Community Center will be hosting a Christmas craft, antique art bazaar on Nov. 25, from 4 to 8 p.m. Chili and soup will also be sold to help buy equipment for the center. Over 14 vendors will be setting up their items to sell and it will be a good variety of items, so mark your calendars to attend and shop, visit and have dinner with us.

The Letcher Area Homemakers had their Thanksgiving dinner and meeting this past Tuesday at the Parkway Motel Restaurant. I hope they had a good meeting.

These shops on Highway 7 are taking food donations for the elderly in need in our area. If you would like to donate canned or other non-perishable food items, drop them off at Gwen’s County Attic, Addie’s Treasures, Foolish Pleasures and Yesterdays Treasures, or Delana’s Little Shoppe, anytime in November and December.

Our sympathy to the family of Elijah ‘Lige’ Ison of Ohio, formerly of Isom. He leaves a large family to mourn his passing. His brothers Dennis and G. B., still live at Isom and his sister, Louise Adams, lives at Blair Branch.nOur condolences to his wife, children and all the rest of his family. He was laid to rest in Ohio.

I hope all veterans realize how much they are loved, supported, and respected in our area. We thank them for their service and sacrifi ces for our country and freedom.

This weekend will be church at Blair Branch. All are welcome to attend.
