Visitors welcome at Hemphill Center



We are thankful for the visitors who watch us on social media and make a point of hanging out with us when they are in town. It warms the heart to know folks who have moved away still have an ear to the ground when it comes to things back here at their old home.

Thanks also to the newcomers and new friends we are able to make with the steady stream of folks coming through the area.

We are grateful to our friends who have donated money for the solar installation. We borrowed the balance of the cost. Your donations will go toward further energy efficiency upgrades and the remainder will be paid on the back of the loan. Thank you, friends!

Come and see us when you can…please! Always know you are welcome.
