The L.B. and Sarah (Parsley) Patton reunion was held on Sunday, Oct. 10, at the Fredonia Lion's Club Building with many descendants in attendance. The family has been gathering for many years, always enjoying an afternoon of visiting and fellowship. The Pattons moved to Crittenden County in 1878 from Laurel County, Ky.
This Saturday (weather permitting), the Dycusburg Community Group (DCG) will clean the town of Dycusburg, starting at 10 a.m. Those who wish to help should meet at the site of the future park. The DCG will provide bags and bottled water. If you live in Dycusburg and you need help removing trash, debris or other items from your property, please call 988-2758 or meet the group at the site and they will direct their efforts as they are able.
Volunteers are also still needed to help with the set up of the park, particularly after the land survey is done and after the drainage culvert is installed. Until those items are complete, the park construction cannot begin. In the meantime, be thinking about ways you can volunteer to help the community.
