There will be a dinner at the Hemphill Community Center to benefit the Letcher County Relay for Life on Sunday, Feb. 14. The dinner will start at 1 p.m. The dinner will consist of ham, chicken and dumplings, mashed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw, roll and dessert. South Mountain Boys will be performing at 2 p.m. The cost will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
Come out on this day of love, and open your heart and give to this wonderful cause. The Letcher County Relay for Life is a great organization and does so much for so many people. The money raised will benefit so many people in our area, and other parts of the state too.
Alberta Perry should be thanked, if you see her, for all the hard work she does for this cause. Some of the money is sent to Hope Lodge in Lexington. Hope Lodge is a blessing for people with cancer and their families. It is just like home away from home. If there is any way possible that you can support anything that the teams for Relay for Life do, please support them because we never know when cancer may affect our lives or loved ones’ lives.
Thanks again to all the people who do work for the Relay for Life in Letcher County.
Get well wishes to Robert Mullins, Jean Amburgey, Net and Jacky Potter, Jason Adams, Mikey Sturgill and Brittanie Sturgill.
