Recreation center holds open house

Hello everyone, I hope all are enjoying this beautiful fall weather.

My brother Archie Ray Fields and a few others from Letcher County went to London and Somerset last Friday to Hal Rogers’s offi ce carrying signs that said, “Letcher County deserves better.”

He returned on Sunday evening. He said he had a good trip and that lots of other people from all over Kentucky were there. Big Cowan

My husband James and I and our friend Melinda ‘K-K’ Daniel went to the ribbon cutting ceremony and open house for the Letcher County Recreation Center on Saturday, Oct. 22. The ceremony was opened by Judge/Executive Jim Ward and led in prayer by Elwood Cornett and the Letcher County Central High School choir led the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ and sang the Nation Anthem and ‘My Old Kentucky Home’.

There were several speakers including Senator Johnny Ray Turner. They all spoke of how the center would be an asset to our community and a place for our young people to have a place to go, as well as other communities who would have use of it, and not have to travel so far.

Afterward, everyone went inside to tour the building. It was really nice.

I saw Dorothy Jean Miles there and her family. She is looking good. Also, Marie Anna (Fields) Pendleton and her son Stoney were there. They had been to the Coal Rally and said they had a really good crowd.

Congratulations to Carol Ann and Kendall Ison’s grandson, Steven Ison, who married Camilla Cook on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the First Baptist Church. Steven is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Ison.

My granddaughter Ashley is scheduled to have surgery Nov. 1. Keep her in your prayers.

Prayer list this week: Irene and Eugene Day, Hazel Rayburn, Anna Lou Combs, Mary Ann Maggard, Barbara Ann Boggs, Dorothy Jean Miles, Tammy Turner, Anne Collier who fell and hurt her arm, Audrey and Charles Hammonds, Bill and Agnes Maggard, Jeanne Adams, Charles Large, Arlene Taylor, Ashley Fields, Brack and Linda Sexton, and Melinda Daniel.

I’m so glad our troops will be home before the end of the year. Hopefully they can spend Christmas with their families. May God watch over all of them until their safe return.

Saturday, Oct. 29, starting at 2 p.m., a benefit for the Toy Truck Drive will be held at the Cowan Community Center. Everyone is invited to attend. If you have any questions, get in touch with Wayne Turner.

Everyone have a great week and attend the church of your choice. Be good to one another. Until next time!
