We just got home from the Irvine-Ravenna Kiwanis meeting, down at the Cedar Village. Had a very enjoyable dinner, with a great group of people. There were quite a few people here from the Lee County Kiwanis Club, it was great to see the room full! The principal from West Irvine Elementary School was our speaker and spoke very highly of the new position she has taken as principal. I look forward to doing an interview with her in the near future for the magazine. It really sounds like the new building is going to be a great addition for the entire community, not just the students. The Irvine-Ravenna Kiwanis Club meets each Thursday at 6pm at the Cedar Village. Myra Finney is the President of the group and does a wonderful job.
Tomorrow is the Estill County Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Luncheon, where Business of the Quarter will be announced. Three very good businesses were nominated, so it will be great to see who was voted as the winner. WSKV 104.9FM is hosting the luncheon and we welcome them as newer members to the Chamber. Ethan and Katie Moore (and Mary and AC too) do a great job, not only at the radio station, but in the community too.
The annual Hospice Benefit at the Verlon Prewitt home is Saturday. Dave and I have to miss it this year, which bums me right out. My grandma Alice was a long-time hospice volunteer and I try to be as involved in our local auction as possible. But another function we must be at has coincided with the Hospice event and we can't be at two places at once. Although that would be nice at times.
Wisemantown United Methodist Church is having their Old Time Camp Meeting Revival Friday and Saturday night at 7pm each evening. Ray Snider, former pastor of the church, will be delivering the message. Everyone is invited.
Estill County Youth Soccer sign-ups are this weekend too. Friday from 6-8pm and Saturday from 11-1. Questions can be answered by calling Staci Owens at 726-9686.
Monday is BREW - Business Roundtable for Estill Women. This time we are meeting at Snug Hollow, owned by Barbara Napier. It should be a fun time and I'm particularly excited because I've never been there! If you have any questions about BREW, Barb Chrisman at Silo Mill Gift Shop would be the person to call! She does an excellent job coordinating this event for the Chamber of Commerce.
In between some of the above events, I think I'll try to get some gardening done ......
