Craftspeople work hard preparing for festival


Our summer season has gone by fast as do all our seasons as you get older. It has been a good season in ways. We are blessed with four seasons. About the time you get used to one, another one comes. I like them all. So far we didn’t get any big storms here.

I attended church at Little Cowan. Carl Bennett and Marsha came by. We enjoyed dinner and a nice visit.

Kay Amburgey is moving to Chicago. Marsha spent several days with her in Lexington to help her get ready to move.

Best wishes to Mr. Chester Rayburn who hasn’t been feeling well. We missed him at church Sunday, also Jeanette Day and several others who aren’t too well.

We are planning to ask for the Association to be at Little Cowan Church next year. It would be an honor to have it. Our pastor, Elder Woodrow Fields, has helped many of the churches during the Association so we feel sure they will support him.

We have missed a lot of our relatives who used to come in during the summer. Most of their parents have passed away so they don’t come back like they used to. We all miss our loved ones that aren’t with us anymore. It’s the same in all the older generation, but we were all blessed in many ways.

The Mountain Heritage Festival is coming up this week. Hope they will have a good turnout and also have nice weather. I really enjoy the festival. I won a TV and $50 during two of the festivals. I never thought I would ever win anything.

I really enjoy going to the festival, seeing friends and the many crafts people have made for others to enjoy. Many work hard to get their crafts ready.

Several members attended the Daughters of the American Revolution meeting at Dairy Queen this past week. Several plans were made or discussed for the new year. New members are welcome. If you have a patriot in the Revolutionary War, you are eligible to join the DAR.

Several members and visitors attended the installation of new officers in Hester Chapter #54, Order of the Eastern Star, on Sept. 18.

We were saddened to hear of the death of Charlie Thomas. Charlie was married to Leona Brown, who was a sister of the late Myrel Brown. Burial will be on Wednesday of this week in Xenia, Ohio, where they have lived for several years.

Morgan Eversole and Bryan Eldridge were married at the Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church Friday. It was a beautiful wedding conducted by Dock Frazier.

Jeanette Day enjoyed an outing recently when her granddaughter, Laura, took her, Harold, and Lyric on the Little Shepherd Trail.

Lucy Montgomery and her daughter, Marietta Stephens of Royalton, visited with Lucy’s sister, Elsie Boggs. Elsie’s daughter, Paula, cooked supper for them. Lucy, who is 95, looks good and enjoyed her visit.

Ray Biggerstaff Jr. of Bowling Green, recently enjoyed a nice visit with his mother, Prina Biggerstaff of Little Cowan.

I enjoyed a nice letter from the Gattons (Christine, Bob and family). They don’t visit like they did when her mother was alive.

There was a good program on KET about World War II Sunday night. We shouldn’t forget. Fifty million people died.
