Additionally, Dycusburg can be found on MySpace and Facebook. Check it out. Recently added to was an interesting account of the Markham family, early settlers of the county.

Attendance at Sunday School at Seven Springs was 49, with several more arriving for preaching.

We were surprised to read in the newspaper last week that attendance was down at Dycusburg Day. With all of the offerings held throughout the day, including the genealogical meeting at the church and the afternoon gospel singing, no one really took attendance. In fact, in terms of participation from vendors, this last Dycusburg Day was our most successful event ever. Keep an eye on this column for more details about the gazebo and other exciting projects from the Dycusburg Community Group.

Congratulations to Chase Matthews and Jennifer Waters who were married on Sunday, Oct. 19 by Judge Exec. Fred Brown at the Henderson cabin on the Cumberland River. It was a gorgeous day.
