On June 1, we wi l l launch the Hemphill Community Center Catering Company. We plan to operate the catering of events from our commercial kitchen at the center. More on this later.

The Senior Fellowship continues each Tuesday at 10 a.m. This gathering is quite popular and the camaraderie is awesome. Don’t be home alone with just the TV for company when you could be enjoying good food and good company.

Friday Nite Pickin’ was lively and so fun. Will Caudill and RT 7 entertained us and we had campaigners in the spring primary election visiting and stomp speaking. We appreciate our generous friends who came bearing gifts that we can turn into funds needed for our efforts. We always enjoy our visitors who travel from all over to be with us. Each Friday it is a different kind of crowd with never a dull moment. You are missing out by staying home.
