Southern Crittenden County News: April 9, 2009

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

We extend our sympathies to the family of Cindy Matthews-Smith, 44, who died Sunday night. She was buried at Dycusburg Cemetery. Additionally, our condolences go out to the family of Imogene Stout.

The Dycusburg Community Group (DCG) yard sale was postponed due to weather last week. The DCG has set dates of April 17-18 for the next sale. During the yard sales, donation boxes will be on site to help fund future DCG events. Funds are low for the group and without contributions, festivities for this year will not match nor compare to the ones in 2008.

Jenny Patton, Aliyah Frutiger and Emma Sosh enjoyed a visit with Jenny's uncle and aunt, Alan and Kay Phillips, in Lexington.

The DCG is also looking for volunteers for a Spring 2009 cleanup. For info, call Michelle Henderson at 988-2758.

Gina, Gary, Justin and McKenzie Noffsinger went to Tampa on vacation recently. The Owensboro Airport now offers a flight on Wednesdays and Saturdays nonstop to Tampa and back.

A dedication ceremony for a marker memorializing Longshore Lamb and his wife, Sarah, will be held Oct. 10 in Caldwell County. All descendants of the Lamb family are invited to attend. Longshore served in the American Revolution as a militia man in South Carolina.

If you have any news to share, please call Michelle at 988-2758 or e-mail us at
