Greetings from the southern end of the county. Spring seems to definitely have sprung. Redbuds are blooming, flowering cherry trees are blooming and everything is beginning to show signs of life. I love spring. We have Easter in Adairville coming up this Saturday, April 12, 2014 beginning at 1 p.m. Bring your kids out for games, bake sale, parade and Easter egg hunt. The Adairville Baptist Church will again have the reenactment of the crucifixion on Good Friday just north of Adairville. Call 270-539-6696 for details. Also, Brent Johnson has announced that Calvary Baptist Church will be having Easter Sunrise Service on April 20th at 7 a.m. and has issued an invitation to everyone to come and be a part of it.
Be sure and go by Country Angel this weekend. They are having a ½ price sale this Friday and Saturday. Lots of stuff in the store is on the ½ price sale. They have great items for you or for gifts. Their baby items are wonderful and great stuff for Easter baskets. The store is packed with tons of great items. Why go out of town to shop. We have the best gift shop ever.
Keep Drucilla Mayes in your prayers as well as her family. Also, keep my aunt, Pearl Tuck, in your prayers and her family, as well as anyone else who is sick or grieving in our community. Continue to keep Bro. Bill Cowan and Mrs. Naomi Finch in your prayers.
Carl Foster came by the office to talk to me about the Peter Cartwright Historical marker. It really needs to be refurbished and I told him that I too had looked into getting all the markers in Adairville done. The Kentucky Historical Society will have the highway department come and take them down and put them back up when finished. The refurbishing costs $800 and they pay all but $160 for each of them to be refurbished. If anyone has an interest in helping to fund this project, please call me at 270-772-2175 or send your check to the South Logan Historical Society at P. O. Box 422, Adairville, Kentucky 42202 and we will get this taken care of. Your help is tax deductible and we will send you a receipt. You would be amazed how many people traveling through stop and read these.
The Strawberry Festival committees are in full swing, the park is getting planted, the pergola painted and getting everything cleaned up and ready for our big festivities.
I have been asking everyone to clean up and so many of you have already started working on this. Just a reminder that the dumpster will be here April 21st for your convenience. Let’s work together to make our town Clean and Beautiful.
The city will be having a surplus sale on April 24th. It will be sealed bids and you will be able to see the items and place your bid in city hall. The bidding will close at 3 p.m. that day, then will be opened and awarded. An ad with a list of the items is in this newspaper.
I continue to work on getting a grocery here and continue to hit a brick wall. Any suggestions will be welcome.
The Coffee Bottom Gal — take 4
I’m sure many of you remember when they had a cash drawing on Wednesday afternoon in Adairville. I can remember the excitement for everyone and there would be a big crowd just hoping you would win. I went many times with Mama but this particular time I went with Daddy. Mama probably needed a break. Anyway, went to the drawing and afterwards went to stay with my Granny (Mary Davis) while Daddy did his errands. I remember being so excited to be at Granny’s during the week without my sister, who was in school and apparently had been talking to her for a while and I looked at her and said. Why don’t you talk, Granny? Don’t you know anything? She just looked at me and said “You haven’t stopped talking long enough for me to say anything.” Thurman says some things never change.
A hui hou kāko
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
