Community center to feature live music

Campbell’s Branch Community Center is quite a busy place. They have the very best music and dancing ever the first Friday of the month.

Appalachian Strings, a band out of Tennessee, will be playing on the second Friday night. Shean Stamper and Sun Rise Ridge will be performing on the third Friday, and on the fourth Friday will be Blue Grass Friends.

So there is no shortage of good music and talented people in Letcher County. Admission is $5 and music starts at 7 p.m. and continues until 10 p.m., sometimes later.

Every Friday there is a full course meal with entrée, dessert and drink. The meal is $6 eat in or carry out, and I can personally tell you the food is good.

On Wednesday, April 3, a big auction will be held at Campbell’s Branch Community Center sponsored by Richard and Michelle Cornett. They have great auctions with no junk. The kitchen will be open serving soup beans, kraut and wieners, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs and banana pudding. So plan on coming to Campbell’s Branch Community Center at Linefork and find some bargains, eat supper and enjoy the evening. The auction starts at 7 p.m.

They have to work hard to keep all the community centers open and the light bill alone is sometimes outrageous. If anyone has something of good value that they would want to donate to auction off on Friday night, it would be appreciated. Also, they will accept paper products and cleaning supplies. Call Fred and Alice Campbell at 606-633-5417 or Doris Adams at 606-634-2530.

Later on this summer we will be having the celebrations music by the Creek. We will be having food and craft vendors. So if you want to set up a craft booth you can call me at 606-634-2530.

I want to thank all the people who work to keep all the community centers open — Cowan, Carcassonne, Campbell’s Branch, Blackey, Hemphill, McRoberts and if I have missed one I am sorry. The community centers are the hub of the community and we are blessed to have them.
