The coming of spring brings many good things. This weekend it brought us a bonus. Chester and Verna Rayburn were able to come from Liberty for the first time in months. They brought pictures to show of their 50th wedding anniversary. No one from here was able to go because of the weather.

They had a good celebration anyway, with their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and many Casey County friends, including two former Letcher countians, Helen and Randy Bentley.

Verna had recently had a good vacation with her daughter, Renee and Shawn Stevenson, Leah, Spencer and Audrey, at Edisto, S.C. While there, they went to Charleston, Ft. Sumpter and an old rice plantation.

Virginia Brown, Anna Yonts, Linda Lucas, Carol Caudill and Doris Banks, enjoyed a dinner at the Pine

Mountain Grill to celebrate current and past birthdays. in bloom
