Blackey Day is fast approaching

Blackey Day is fast approaching. When we started planning this event it seemed like we had all the time we needed, but here we are with just a few days left for the big event, Blackey Day, Oct. 15.

The trees are beginning to change and we have frost forecast for the weekend. Fall in Letcher County is here, the prettiest time of year. Fall in Kentucky, as my son says, looks like a bowl of M&M candy, and it really does.

Violet Watts has an awesome musical lineup for our entertainment this year, as always. She does such a good job at this.

The silent auction is going real well. We have some real good donations, including some tickets for comedy clubs and events in Tennessee and Kentucky that you don’t want to miss, and much more.

All of our craft booths are filled with a waiting list. We have 20 craft booths and we have such a good selection we will have something for everybody.

Our food booths are great this year, with a good selection of food. So we have tried to have something this year for everyone to enjoy. We have inflatables and the train for the children free of charge.

So plan on coming to Blackey Day Oct. 15, and enjoy the whole day. We have music scheduled from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. We also have Blackey Day t-shirts and sweats and caps. Those sweats will feel good by then, so make plans to come spend the day with us at the Blackey Day Celebration with family and friends. It’s almost like a family reunion.

You will see people you haven’t seen in years and people you’ve seen yesterday, but it’s all good. So come and join us for the whole day, you will feel happy.

There will be a big country breakfast at Blackey Missionary Baptist Church Oct. 15, from 8 to 10 a.m.

For more information, call Loye Caudill, 633- 4029 or Doris Adams, 632- 3777. Thank you and God bless.
