The committee for the Middle Cowan/Dongola reunion wants to remind everyone of the reunion to be held at the Cowan Community Center Saturday, Oct. 6. They are not asking a fee for attending. If anyone wants to make a voluntary donation toward the expenses, they may do so at the time, but it is not required. Everyone is welcome.
Amanda, Tyler and Kyle Galer visited family this week, Glen and Sue Banks, Edison, Pam, Nicole and Hayley Banks, Mary, Marty and Ashley Richardson.
Janice and Ron Wolod of Maryland spent some days on Cowan. After traveling through the mountains looking for bears, Ron finally got to see one right here on Little Cowan in a neighbor’s driveway.
Ron and Janice, Duane and Anny Yonts, Carol Caudill and Randy Brown all joined us at Virginia’s for a good potluck supper. We enjoyed a walk up the hollow, sharing good memories of playing in the branch, catching crawdads, visiting Bert and Jack and their families when they lived up there, and looking for the sulfur spring.
Bennett and Linda Combs’s daughter, Regina Crawford, and her friend Donna McClure have been visiting them. They are representatives of Senator Mitch McConnell in the central and eastern parts of Kentucky. They were here for the dedication of the Pioneer Horse Trail on Pine Mountain.

Linda Combs’s sister, Yvonne Sutphin, is visiting family and friends this week. She attended the Indian Bottom Association on Saturday. She and Linda went to the Homemaker lesson at the Extension Office. It was presented by Ann Bradley on embroidery. She showed one of Virginia Brown’s beautiful embroidery on velvet cushions as an example.
Linda sends hellos to Dana and Don Walker of Naples, Fla., and her sister Arminta, who is visiting her.
Charles and Faye Banks have had some great company the past two weeks. Fay’s stepdaughter, Linda, and Linda’s daughter, Dreama, came from Columbus, Ohio, for a visit. They had not been in for a long time as they have not been in good health.
Faye’s sister, Iva, of Tiffin, Ohio, and their friend Irene Betz of Florida, came in for the Hatton reunion. Faye reports that attendance was down a little, but there were still plenty of friends there. A good time was had by all — they ate themselves miserable and talked themselves silly.
She hopes to see all the gang next year, and asks that you take care and God bless you all.
We were thankful that Labor Day weekend brought us visitors at church. Yvonne Sutphin came with her sister Linda; Rusty, Tori, Callie and Ella Akers were with John and Barbara Banks; and Tippy Wyatt from Indiana was with his cousins, Sandra, Kathy, Barbara and Marcia.
Martha Wenning and Susan Ware are actually homefolk, but they live away and it is always good to have them back. They and their brother, John Campbell, have had several of their children visiting. They visited their Aunt Virginia on Sunday afternoon.
