Blackey Days draws crowd

The recent spaghetti dinner fundraiser held to help with medical and travel expenses for Laura and Michael Adams was a huge success. An outpouring of support from their family and friends throughout the community showed how people in our area come out to support those in trouble. Not only monetary support, but many prayers have been said for Laura and the family.

Anna Lou and Mary Jo Blair recently spent a couple days quilting a quilt in Tommy Harris Smith’s garage. Coreen Pridemore and I dropped in to visit and quilt a few stitches with them.

Around 60 family members and friends attended the George M. and Sally Adams family reunion. Bill, Luther Adams and Danola Adams Bell were in attendance and many cousins too. They enjoyed their time together. Alice Adams also made it to the get-together.

Blackey Days Festival was a big success and many attended the two days of local hometown fun, and enjoyed seeing neighbors and old friends, listening to music and shopping.

Doug Raglin and Luther Adams came in to attended the Adams reunion and also attended Blackey Days. They stayed with Johnny Combs and all three visited the festival at Blackey from Thursday to Saturday. Luther gave out cookies to the veterans, a job Mike Dunn was in charge of, but since his recent passing the lady who sponsors it contacted Luther to help out.


Donna Smith recently held a reunion for her family. Dennis Gene, Buck, Danna, Sonja and Debbie were all pleased to see their sister, whom they hadn’t seen since she was a baby. I believe her name is Sandy, and her daughter came with her from Ohio. Many more family and friends were there including their aunt, Molly.

Mary Helen Blair got to attend Blackey Days with the help of Adrian and Libby. She was glad to see her friends, but was worn out when she got back to the nursing home.

All are welcome to attend Blair Branch Church this weekend.
