  • Stephensburg community news


    Betty Pullen, 862-4844.

    Hello, I hope this week has been a good one for all. There has been a lot going on.

    I have talked with Debbie Butler and she was excited to share with me that as most people know, most of her family is not from here. She wanted to have a campout and cookout and just had a hard time finding the right time to plan it. Trying to gather a large family together this day and time is hard to do. But she set her date for Oct. 6, invited about 51 people and 26 showed came and nine stayed and camped out.
