    What a beautiful day we had on Monday to celebrate Evergreen Outreach!
    It was EO’s last day, for a time, to meet in the Long Term Care facility at Fayette County Hospital. It has been a lovely experience for EO participants and volunteers, and everyone appreciated so much the use of the facility.

  • Lawrence Brown, Dewayne Brown, Russ Stewart and Bob Culbertson traveled to Nashville, Tenn., to fill the request of their fans, to cut a CD of their music as the popular gospel group, the FOURGIVEN Quartet.
    They consented to share their experience, which proved to be even more unforgettable, sadly, by the fact that, due to the terrible onslaught of the recent storm, the area was flooded and homes and buildings ruined.
