Blackey Day, Oct. 16, is almost here.
The Blackey Improvement Committee had worked hard to make this the best Blackey Day ever. The silent auction is going to be great. We have Disney tickets to auction, plus too much more to mention. The food and crafts booths are outstanding.
The Neon Masons are serving a barbeque dinner with a barbeque sandwich, potato wedges, baked beans and coleslaw for $6. All their profits will go to the children of Letcher County’s Christmas fund. What a good thing to do.
We have several other food booths with a good variety of food, along with funnel cakes. So you’ll have several choices.
Blackey Missionary Baptist Church will be serving a big, country breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. A good way to start the day.
We have a whole day of entertainment planned with inflatables, a Shriners train, cakewalks, craft and food booths, music, and family and friends to visit with. So bring your chairs, and one for a friend or neighbor, and come spend the day.
The stage schedule is: 10:45 a.m., Pledge of Allegiance with Mountain Heritage Head Start, My Old Kentucky Home with Lisa Braswell and Jack Adams; 11 a.m., Lee Sexton and Jack Adams, 11:30 a.m., Melody Watts; noon, Mountain Melody; 1 p.m., Chad Caudill; 1:30 p.m., James Gary Back; 1:45 p.m., cakewalk; 2 p.m., 7 South; 3 p.m., Pine Mountain Grass; 4 p.m., Will Caudill and 7 South; 5 p.m., Brian Campbell; 6 p.m., East Kentucky Tyme; 7 p.m., Mountain Melody.
Will Caudill will be performing the song, ‘Memories of Blackey,’ the song he wrote. It is awesome.
