There has been activity at the site of the old Hoover Grocery. The current owner of the building has been seen moving equipment into the building. Since he lives out of town I have not been able to reach him.

It is a good place to stop in and have a meal. The salads are a specialty. I am told over two thousand people have signed the birthday book. All seniors 65 and over get a discount on all purchases. (I am looking forward to this in about 20 years.)
There are still several empty buildings on the square and the goal of the chamber is to find occupants so the square will be filled again. If interested in opening a business in town contact Nannette Starks King or Donna Blake.

I have hopefully sold my current home, Peach Blossom Farm, and am soon to be living in the city proper of Adairville. I spoke with my builder this week and we are ready to start work on my forthcoming hotel before the end of the year. We are also planning a small country cafe with good home cooked food at a reasonable price. I will run the hotel and Patty Costello will manage the cafe.
I want to thank all of you who have sent in suggestions for the hotel's name. Local citizen, Albert Fuqua, gave the last suggestion which was "Ms. Pauline's" Hotel. The suggestion has been rejected!
Pat On The Back -Our town is blessed with an outstanding volunteer fire department. I am told it is one of the oldest in the state. The volunteers do a wonderful service for our community. The save homes, barns, other buildings and equipment, but, most important they save lives. Without them we would all be in great peril. I am thankful for each and every one of the volunteers that serve our community. Their public service need to be applauded. A big pat on the back to each of you.
Time to go. Good night Joan Hughes, Cecil Prince, Ann Lette, Georgia Ruth Costello, Clark & Dorthy Cowan, Mark & Amy Cowan, Cathy Creek, Mary Crotzer, Sweet Angel Sister and Mrs. Calabash wherever you are.
