VillageFest set Saturday in Paint Lick

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — Good morning readers. It’s time for the open house of the Paint Lick Community Arts Center (the old bank building) on Friday evening starting at 5:30. You will be amazed!

Then, it’s VillageFest.

Paint Lick’s 22nd-annual VillageFest is this Saturday here in the street and everyone is welcome to share in our big day as all the vendors from everywhere will set up their wares.

We have The Gospel Barn which will have its large yard sale including a complete roofing trailer with an elevator, compressor, torching gun and all extra equipment.

Walter Jones and Myrtle have a variety of good furniture also for a reasonable price. They will be out from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are on the hill just as you come into Paint Lick from the Madison county side.

Pat Baker and her crew will have handmade Bibles or “Personal Boxes.” I  love mine and it holds my daddy’s family Bible given to me at his passing.

Silas Keen will be there Saturday with this year’s “Homemade in Paint Lick Honey” gathered at the old Todd Farm.

The Paint Lick Christian Church ladies will be serving bowls of hot soup beans, fried cornbread and all the baked goodies you will need.

Rickie Collette, Dora Bowles, Linda Caldwell and Loraine Todd will conduct the “Friends Porch Sale” and I hope to be serving up some hot potato soup to benefit our Friends of Paint Lick. Coffee also will be available.

Loretta Adams and the other volunteers will be hosting their silent auction and we will have some raffle items on display.

Come early and set up your table or your tent. Even the tailgate on your truck will do to get the day going strong. I probably have not mentioned everyone who will be here, but just show up and enjoy the day. It will wind up at 3 p.m.

It was a pleasure to have friends of Paint Lick Christian Church with us on Sunday. Harry and Deborah Bolen are good friends with Pastor Ted and his wife Barbara.    

Paint Lick Church of God is having its “Fall Homecoming” starting this Thursday and Friday evening beginning at 7 p.m., with Rev. Teddy Couch and Rev. Ryan Osborne, respectively. Sunday morning services will host Rev. Andy Saylor (from our post office, remember?) with a lunch provided after the welcome by Pastors Patrick and Ashley Roberts. The church is on the Old Railroad and everyone is welcome. Call (859) 227-9935 for more information.

Susie and Doug Tussey of Round  Hill’s General Store will have a fish fry this Saturday from 4 to 8 p.m. It will be a good wrap up for the day to enjoy myself when the VillageFest is done. If you want some good tasting fish served with a warm smile, go on over to Round Hill. You will enjoy!

Happy birthday to Mrs. Bertha McQuerry this Friday. She will be 90 years young. My sister-in-law, Francine Alexander will be another year younger also on Friday. Another sister-in-law, Madrew K. Alexander will be celebrating her big day on Sunday, Oct. 7. I pray  you all will have a grand birthday and may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
