McRoberts Days coming in August

It’s coming up on McRoberts Days before we know it. We have been meeting at the center to get ideas for the reunion, festival and parade.

It will all be at the schoolyard, and will be on the first Friday and Saturday of August, the 5th and 6th.

The committee members present at the last meeting were Jimmy Moore, Bear Tackett, Sarah Hutton, Judy Fleming, Cody Mullins, Martha Mullins, Boonie Mullins, David Anderson, Tracey Branham, Betty Anderson, James Johnson, Celeste Johnson and myself.

Those who couldn’t come to the last meeting were Sue Hall, James Hall, Johnny Holmes and Jackie Norcutt. We urge anyone to come out and help us to make this year a success.

Last year was awesome with what lots of folks say was the best parade in this area, and the best fireworks in all of Letcher County. We are working hard to make it even better this year. We want everyone to get out and join us.

There will be a cruise-in on Friday, Aug. 5, along with great entertainment and food booths. The parade will be at 11 a.m., Saturday morning. If you have an entry, please contact us.

We will have G.C. Kincer to announce for us again this year. Our parade was huge and awesome.


We had the TV station filming for us. We will have tents for anyone to cool off and rest.

We are taking pre-orders for tee-shirts now, or if you have an entry for the parade, please contact me at 855- 4118, or 634-0800; Betty Anderson, 212-1203; Boonie Mullins, 832-4729, Cody Mullins, 832-4007, or Jimmy Moore, 1-606-639-6363.
