l ll!llill The Bath County News-Outlook "Thursday, July 6, 2006 :~!~ :(~i ~ ~ ~ ? :i i East Fork news By: Nancye Hall Now I know why I have kept several letters from years ago. They still speak to me through a haze of memories. I received another "keeper" letter the other day. It was from an old friend, Wdma Young Whitton, who lives in Indiana. W'dma grew up here at East Fork, and she has never forgotten her roots. She echoes my feeling that the old home place and community ale almost hal- lowed ground. We are who we are because of where we grew up and the people with whom we grew up. I lived in Ohio for almost forty years, but Ohio was never my "home". These hills, these hollows, and this creek are my home. These people are my people. We have so much in com- mon. Likewise, I treasure my East Fork memories of W'dma and Nancy and their parents, Sterl and Kathleen. I think that Wilma would agree: 'q'here's no place like home." One of East Fork's own was honored with a retirement dinner Friday night at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Fairbom, Ohio. Billy Black retired from the Civilian Federal Services after nineteen years. Counting those years, he. had a total of forty-two years with the United States Air Force. One of the speakers elicited responses from Billy about his background. He learned that Billy is the youngest of five chil- dren, three of whom ale still liv- ing, He was only thirteen months old when his dad died suddenly, and his mother reared him. He joined the Air Force in 1963 and lraveled to various parts of the country and the world, but he always maintained a humble atti-. tude. He never tooted his own horn. Billy received congratulato- ry wishes from President George Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, as well as various awards and acknowledgments. Area family members who Otis. Jim Tmcher has recently taken his dad to Lexington for medical tests. Kaleb Roberson, C. J. Clevinger, and Jacob Anderson spent the weekend with Charles, Linda, and Cody Anderson. Charles and Linda and the boys went to a pig mast at the home of Carol and Roger Stephens Saturday night. The boys had such a good time. Anna lee Anderson and Louise Fry visited Buck and Alyene Buckler Sunday afternoon. East Fork Church attendance Sunday was 60. Offering was $487.50. Have you noticed how often the East Fork Church is mentioned in this column? The reason is that the church is the focal point of the community. It defines East Fork's character: a caring, God-fearing community. As some young Amish men labored diligently this past week to put a new roof on the church, I gave thanks that the preservation of the church contin- ues. Just the thought of the church being abandoned or falling into a state of disrepair gives me pause to thank God for the church. I am often in awe as I gaze upon the church in the early morning sun- light or sometimes in the evening twilight. SO many schoolchildren, so many worshippers have gone through those doors. It is my wish that the East Fork Church Stand tall and proud for generations to come. May its very presence give others strength, as it gives me strength. 9 Oaks Farm news By: Pat Gates Greetings All!! I hope at this writing that you all have had a wonderful week.
