Escape artist entertains at Hemphill Ctr.

It’s good when the seniors meet. Good fun, good company, and a good lunch are a guarantee. Don’t sit home alone. This takes place each Tuesday. You will be as welcome as spring flowers.

The Senior Fellowship was served breakfast instead of lunch last week at their Tuesday morning gathering. Our own Richard Stewart, retired baker and military man, served up his homemade biscuits and gravy. Ms. Mable made the chocolate gravy and a great big country breakfast was enjoyed along with some of the best company to be found anywhere. Every week is an adventure for this spunky lively group.


Friday Nite Pickin’ was great with the Country Troubadours. An exceptional evening with good music and dancing. We had a surprise visit from Eugene Mullins of Pound, Va. Eugene has been featured on America’s Got Talent. He is a skilled magician and escape artist. Check out the pictures of his straightjacket escape before our very eyes.

Tom Wright was his assistant. Tom buckled the jacket on Mr. Mullins as tightly as possible and to our amazement he slipped out of it as quick as a wink. Our thanks to Eugene for entertaining us while the band took a break.

Schedule of events:

Friday Nite Pickin’ on July 15 at 7:30 p.m., Cross Country Bluegrass will be our featured band and they do a mighty fine job in both genres they specify in their chosen title. Jukebox country oldies and the very best in bluegrass tunes are their specialty. We never tire of their picking and singing. You will enjoy them too.
