Dycusburg News: Oct. 25, 2007

The Baptist church hosted their annual Fall Festival on Friday night. It was a huge success complete with a clown who had a pocket full of ice cream cone toys for the kids and buggy rides from Justin and Brody Sutton. The cakewalk was a favorite activity as well as bingo. The kids loved the duck pond -- they got to play in the water! Each child left with their pockets full of toys. A potluck chili and sandwich supper was served. Everyone had a nice time. The church hosts the fall festival each year in October.

Sincere condolences to the family of Vanessa Lindsey Waggoner Porterfield. Our community was saddened by her passing last week. Vanessa was a friend of mine since first grade. Despite hard times and sickness, she always had a smile on her face and a laugh in her voice. She will be missed but Heaven is a better place because she is there.

The Dycusburg Community Fund Committee is accepting recipes for a community cookbook. Deadline is Nov. 15. Printing is scheduled for early 2008. Recipes may be mailed to PO Box 59, Dycusburg, KY 42037 or emailed to We are seeking recipes from families from Dycusburg residents, current and former and stories to go along with the recipes if you have any.

It seems that as Christmas approaches, Matthew T. Patton tends to get more e-mail about Dycusburg books. At this point, he has none in his inventory. He would be willing to order some more if enough folks are interested. Please e-mail him at if you would like to add your name to the running list for the next printing.

Saturday, October 27 is national "Make a Difference in your Community Day." Activities are being scheduled; anyone who wants to help be in town Saturday morning.

The Dycusburg community committee is seeking donations for a veteran’s memorial monument and flagpoles. We are offering chances on a country ham and a $50 gift certificate to the Food Giant for a donation of $1-$5. Drawings will be held Nov. 13.

Bro. Chris Clark will speak at the Baptist church on Sunday and a potluck dinner will follow. Everyone is invited to attend and hear about Bro. Clark’s rodeo ministry.
