We had a great turnout for Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. It is a community event we offer in the spring where the folks of our community look forward to interacting with neighbors.
Kids come hesitant at first to come face to face with the bunny rabbit, but after a few hops and a shake or two on the cottontail the fun begins. After that the adults hobnob away while the children run and play and look forward to the Easter egg hunt.
It’s always fun to watch the children gather eggs running with baskets, buckets, and grocery bags. Memories of childhood are always conjured up when I see running feet and colored eggs nestled in the grasses. Spring has arrived.
The Digging Up Roots Ancestry Forum begins meeting on alternate Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The next one will be held April 18. Participants are invited to bring a laptop or tablet, and paper and pen. This will a free, bimonthly workshop offered courtesy of Jo Ann Hall Osborne. For more information, call (606) 855-4463.
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.
Come support local live music and community building efforts. Music on Fridays from 7 to 9 p.m.
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.
It’s a hate free zone and you are invited! Come and linger among friends!
