Easter Bunny coming to Hemphill Center

Finally a few days without snow. Hopefully we will not have much more snow, but I can remember when we had a huge snowstorm in April and my little Easter egg tree in my front yard was covered with white.

I hope the children have a warm Easter this year.

Speaking of Easter, the Hemphill Community Center will have its Breakfast with the Easter Bunny on Saturday, March 27, from 8 until 11 a.m. The Easter Bunny will be there to have pictures made, and to hunt eggs with the kids. Bring your little ones out to hunt eggs, and please bring a basket or something for them to put their eggs in when they find them. Also enjoy a good, old-fashioned breakfast of homemade gravy and biscuits and all the trimmings.

Friday, March12, Gina Seals and Highway 23 will be performing at the center. If you missed her the last time you missed some great singing and music. The room was full and I thought I would have to hunt more chairs for people to sit in. Come out and enjoy a variety of music and good family fun.

Happy birthday wishes to Stephen Rex Fox this month.

I had company in this past weekend from Pekin, Ind. My sister Lois Fleming Anderson and her granddaughter Amie Marino stayed all weekend with me. We spent a relaxing Friday evening at home and on Saturday we went to my grandson Hunter’s birthday party at Dairy Queen, and then on to the Vendors Mall at Isom and Shopping at Walmart at Hazard to check out its material.

All three of us are quilters, and I am so proud of Amie that she has really taken an interest in quilting. She has made several quilts and wall hangings in the last couple of years. She is a very crafty and creative person.

I hated to see them leave and go home. It was a delight to have them here and break the humdrum boredom of being cooped up all winter.

A couple of weeks ago I had mentioned that Opal Potter Fleming was very sick. I got a phone call Saturday morning telling me that she had died. I feel so sorry for the family. I know what they are going through. It is a very hard thing to go through when you lose your mother. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you.

There will be a fundraiser at the Community Center for Letcher County Kentucky Ambassadors of Music students on Friday, March 13, from 7 until 10 p.m. Admission is $5. Music will be by Jeremy Paul Wright, Corey Michael Baker, Gary and Roger Amburgey, Judy Kincer, Jason Eckles, and John Fowler, and Tiff any Adams, with a special performance by the Millstone Methodist Youth Drama Team.

There is a possibility that President Barack Obama will be there. Music will consist of oldies, rock, country, gospel and comedy. Concession will be available

We will also have Split the Pot, bake sale items and a gas card giveaway. Sounds like a place you would like to be on Saturday night. Hope to see you there

Good luck to Ellen Hampton and Yvonne Bentley, who are scheduled to have surgery this week.

May God bless and keep you safe.
