The time is almost here to start cleaning, mowing and weed-eating the Hampton and Dixon cemeteries.
Vergle Caudill will be seeing to the upkeep of these cemeteries, and you can start sending in donations to him at Box 172, Blackey, KY 41804. All help is appreciated.
Since I wrote last, Elmer Caudill, Carol S. Blair, Cora Caudill and Lance Breeding, and many others have had birthdays. I hope their birthdays were special and filled with well wishes.
Roland and Carol had their children, Dewayne and Valerie, and some of the grandchildren with them to help Carol celebrate her birthday.
Daniel and Kayla Adams’s son, Mason, recently celebrated his fourth birthday. He’s a cute little “feller” and I hope he had a great day.
All the recent rains and flooding we have had have left a mark on many areas, but the worst damage was the mudslide that knocked Keith and Diane Adams’s home off its foundation. Many pitched in to help carry their belongings out of the house, and do all they could for them.
A dinner and auction will be held soon to help them, also. More details on this later.
Audrey Hogg, Joanne Walters and Jim and Mary Susan Flynn, all kept a vigil watch at Blackey as the river rose closer and closer to their homes. It did creep into Audrey’s basement before it started to recede.
