Happy Anniversary to those celebrating this week!

We have lost several loved ones, friends and neighbors in our communities during the past week and we send our condolences to their families. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers. Get-well prayers are also needed by several at home and in the hospital this week. Also remember those affected by tragic events in our world, that we may come together to find a peaceful world where everyone can live.

We also want to remember the first responders who are committed to serving and protecting their communities on a daily basis. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers and tell them thank you for their service.

I encourage you to send me your information about upcoming events, anniversaries, awards and recognition, birthdays, church, organization and school news, prayer and get well requests, promotions, retirements, reunions, vacations, etc. You can reach me at (270) 399-1578, via Facebook message or by email at I look forward to hearing from you and promoting great things about our communities.
