Community center will stay open in September

Go to our Facebook page for announcements and pictures posted after each event, www.facebook.com/pages/Hemphill-Community-Center.

Greetings all! We need to announce that we will NOT be shutting down during the month of September as has been our custom in recent years. We will be having business as usual in that month as we are having to work hard to keep the bills paid and the lights on at Hemphill Community Center.

Winter is coming on and the cold winds and hardships it will bring with it are a great burden to non-profit organizations like us. Black Sheep Bakery and Catering is a community-owned social enterprise established to fund the efforts and pay the utilities at Hemphill Community Center.

The sheep at Black Sheep Brick Oven Bakery are producing pizza and baked goods on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You may call in for carry-out or dine in. Our new hours will be 3 to 9 p.m. three days per week. We may add days and hours as we see demand.

Check out our menu at www.facebook.com/Hemphillblacksheep/.

Thursday nights we will host a drum circle so bring your drum or percussion instrument and join us at 7 p.m. Friday Nite Pickin’ will continue as usual every Friday. Saturday nights will feature open mic 7 to 9 p.m. Musicians can come sing for their supper every Saturday.

Black Sheep Bakery is now taking orders for loaf breads (white, 9 grain, and honey oat), sourdough, French bread, and hot rolls. We will be baking on our working days. Special orders can be picked up on regular business days. If the time doesn’t work for you we will arrange for you to pick up. Message us on Facebook or call (606) 671-7023 or (606) 821-2401. Special orders are welcome!
