The winner of the raffle for the Mossberg 500, 20-gauge, pump action shotgun is Jackie Balthis of Pound, Va. She is probably skeet shooting this very moment. Congratulations, Jackie!

Happy 2017 to all of you from all of us at Hemphill Community Center!

Schedule of events:

Senior Fellowship Tuesdays at 10 a.m. Lunch and service provided by seniors for seniors. Hold on to your hat because this is a spunky crew! They don’t need no rocking chair.


Dec. 30 at 7: 30 p. m., Sunrise Ridge will be our featured band. They are a feast for the ears. They play a strong, pleasant show of bluegrass and country. Their vocal talents and picking style are unique and range from high and lonesome to foot-stomping good. Natalie, the pretty little fiddler, can saw one off with the best of them. She has a bad case of the devil’s elbow. When you hear her fiddle your feet will start moving effortlessly of their own accord. Come on out and see for yourself.

Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 6 p.m., if you are looking for a chance for a new start, come out for a light supper, which will be provided. Shawn Lind of Appalshop will present about a training and employment opportunity in the field of technology through Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. No experience necessary. RSVP by phone (606) 671-7023, or email shawn.lind@gmail.com.

Sunday, Jan. 22 from 2 to 5 p.m., the first ever monthly shape note singing in the “doe re mi” tradition. This is an ancient art form. It will feed your soul’s need for creative expression.
