There will be a concerned persons group starting on Oct. 22 at the Blackey Library, which is on a Monday, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The group is for those who want to help someone close to them enslaved by the stronghold of a life-controlling problem. The purpose of the group is to encourage and strengthen each group member in God’s love. For more information, you can contact Diane Caudill at 634-7742 or Susan Jent at 335-2232.
My daughter Jennifer and I took my grandson Kaleb to the fall festival held at the Calvary College campus last week. He had such a good time. I got to meet some of the people from Calvary and they are such nice people, so thanks to them for having the event and to Letcher Fire and Rescue. They are always there at these events for the kids. They gave them fire truck rides and hats.
