We are pleased to announce we will soon possess a unique brand of our own with which to market our community center and our catering company. We are working with Mountain Tech Media of Whitesburg to develop such a brand as part of our efforts to refine and customize our new venture and future endeavors. We are excited about this.
The Senior Fellowship is a huge success with the seniors working together to build an enduring tradition of food, fellowship, and good times. Who says they have to let life pass them by after a certain point? These feisty folks are blazing yet another trail for us to follow. Our hats are off to them as they have taken the reins and are joyfully moving on. This is a powerful example of resilience.
Friday Nite Pickin’ was a great success last week. We greatly enjoyed Cross Country Bluegrass. These guys are some of the greatest pickers anywhere. William Caudill is a guitar picker second to none. Marcus Riley is extraordinary on the mandolin. Anthony O’Quinne is a great bass player and can slap that up right with the very “best of them.” Buddy Young is just that . . . a buddy/ friend to all and a dynamite banjo picker/steel guitarist/ piano player. These guys are singers all with multilayered harmonies and sweet solos. All together this makes for a great evening of entertainment and fun.
We sure are appreciative of all who came out to enjoy them with us. We hope you will please come back soon.
Schedule of events:
Friday Nite Pickin’ on May 27, at 7:30 p.m., Dawson Creek will return to help set toes tapping and feet dancing. Their brand of bluegrass is hard to beat with sweet three-part harmony being one of their strengths. They throw in a sprinkling of humor and a dash of laughter for good measure. Come on out and have fun with us.
