Hemphill Community Center announcements:

Check out our Facebook page for announcements and pictures posted weekly. www.facebook.com/ pages/ Hemphill- Community-Center, Friday June 27, at 7:30 p.m., Dawson Creek will return and we look so forward to them each month. Their comic antics are heartwarming with a sprinkling of irony and sarcasm. Their sound is smooth and bold, hard driving and high lonesome, bitter and sweet. They do the old bluegrass standards and some of the “homesick for the mountains” songs from up North. These songs speak to the hearts of all the Appalachian folk who have wandered from the hearth of home. Come on back and hang out with us. We will treat you like family.

Friday July 4: Cancelled for Independence Day; Friday July 11: The Country Troubadours; Friday July 18: Cross Country Bluegrass. Aspiring singers and musicians who want to share their talents are invited to play during intermission on Friday nights. The target audience is bluegrass/country/ folk. Limit two songs per individual/group until all who wish to pick have had a turn. Rotation as time allows. You will always find a kind and receptive crowd. We have some veteran musicians playing in featured bands who played their first public appearance as a novice on our stage. This is an opportunity to break the ice and get your feet wet so to speak. Everyone is welcome!

Family fun for all ages. Kids get in free when accompanied by an adult. Good food, good music, good fellowship.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Proverbs 17:21-23
