Southern Crittenden County News: April 23, 2009

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

Our sympathy is extended to the family of Eddie Wilford who died last week. We also extend our sympathies to Josh Mahns whose mother, Debbie, died on Monday.

The annual fish fry to benefit the Dycusburg cemetery fund will be held Sunday, May 17 at 1 p.m. It is planned for the Methodist Church lot unless it rains. In that case, it will be held at the Baptist fellowship hall.

Birthdays celebrated last week include Justin Noffinger (4/17), Regina Matthews (4/18), Justin Sutton (4/21), Jeannie Griffin (4/22), Amanda Oliver and Dylan Strilko (4/23).

We are glad to hear Phillip Buchanan is home from the hospital and feeling better.

Faye Stinnett and Barbara Ethridge visited Rhea Stinnett, Joy Ferguson, Millie Cole and Sue Peek at Springlake Nursing Home in Salem. When they left, Faye went on to Marion to pick up new eyeglasses while Barbara stopped at Livingston Hospital to give blood. They encourage anyone with extra time to visit or make a phone call to the sick, shut-ins and elderly. It is truly a blessing to both parties.

The yard sale at Michelle Henderson's home was succesful at Dycusburg but contributions to the DCG and Homes for Our Troops, the organization building Chase Matthews and his family a new home, fell short of expectations.

If you attended the Fourth of July celebration, "Red, White and Boom," last year at Dycusburg, we encourage you to send a donation to buy fireworks for this year's celebration. Without donations, a spectacular fireworks show will not be possible. Donations may be sent to: Dycusburg Community Group, P.O. Box 112, Dycusburg, KY 42037 (write "fireworks" in the memo area of your check). Watch this column for developments.
