The old year was a hard year for us. We have had to rethink a lot of things and roll up our sleeves and use more elbow grease. Change is always hard but not always bad. Entering 2017 we are hopeful for the future and determined to fulfill the vision for the Center. If you have a heart to be involved we would love to have you come join in. We meet the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m.
We are grateful for our community service folks who help out tremendously on a daily basis. You guys are the bomb!!!
We also want to express our gratitude to all the friends of Hemphill Community Center who help out in various ways. A special thanks also to our friends at The Mountain Eagle. It still screams!
We cannot do what we do without all the help. We can’t thank you enough!
Happy Old Christmas!!! Interesting information on this holiday can be found at: www.telliquah.com/OldXmas.htm.

Senior Fellowship Tuesdays at 10 a.m. Lunch and service provided by seniors for seniors. Hold on to your hat because this is a spunky crew! They don’t need no rocking chair.
Jan. 6 at 7:30 p.m., Old Christmas. Will Caudill and Rt. 7 will return for another of the awesome shows they are always good for. We look forward to their visit with us each month.
