Southern Crittenden County News: Jan. 22, 2009

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

Correction from last week: Super Bowl Sunday is Feb. 1, not Feb. 2 as erroneously reported. A Super Bowl XLIII party will be held at Dycusburg Grocery at 5 p.m. on Feb. 1.

Attendance at Seven Springs was 88 for Sunday school and 104 for preaching. Several have joined the church recently. The church voted in a new preacher, Bro. Steve Pleasant, of Greenville, Ky.

Maxine Sunderland and family of Frances lost their home in a devastating fire last week.

Our sympathies go out to the family of Laura Andrews, 59, of Frances who died after a short battle with cancer. We also send sympathies to the family of Carolyn Riley-Peek, 60, of Kuttawa.

Birthday wishes are extended to Travis Sosh (Jan. 16); Ethan Paddock (Jan. 21); James Artist (Jan. 24); and Jenny Patton (Jan. 26).

The next meeting of the Dycusburg Community Group will be Tuesday, Jan. 27, 5 p.m. at the home of Michelle Henderson (45 Hilltop Dr.) in Dycusburg. All of those interested in hearing plans for the group for 2009 are encouraged to attend.

Jason Scott Smith, II, was born Jan. 14. Although his mother, Nilcole, was released Jan. 19, the baby remains at Memorial Hermann in Houston. Born premature, he weighed 6 lbs., 9 oz., and should be released in the next few days. He is the first grandson of Dan and Michelle Henderson.
