We have converted Friday Nite Pickin’ to a supper club environment where folks can come and enjoy music while eating their evening meal from the fabulous Black Sheep Menu. We will have a featured local singer/ songwriter every Friday. Last Friday, Gary Joseph played a great show. We are enjoying the fresh new laid-back format of Friday Nite Pickin’. Folks danced and Gary played special requests. It was awesome.

This week our featured singer/songwriters are William and Boyd. We hope you will support our efforts and support our local musicians doing live music!!! Come join us!!!

Breakfast with the Easter Bunny is coming up April 13 from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Some of Hemphill’s best will be cooking a big ole coal camp breakfast just for you. Breakfast will consist of bacon, sausage, fried baloney, gravy, biscuits, eggs and fried apples with all the trimmings. No better breakfast can be found! Don’t miss this! $7 adults, $3 children.

You have an open invitation to come and hang out with us at the Center when you can. We have Wi-Fi now so kids and adults are better satisfied not being cut off from their electronic devices. We also have a playground and a walking track so bring the whole family for a visit. It’s a hate free zone and you are invited!! Come and linger among friends!!!
