    Hello friends and neighbors, I hope all is well with everyone.

    FAREWELL. The Stephensburg Volunteer Fire Department hosted a dinner in April for the Spencers as a way to say thank you for the years the family owned and operated Spencer’s Market here in Stephensburg.

    For as long as I can remember, there has been a grocery here. The first one I remember was operated by the Pirtles. The Spencers took over for the Terry family and eventually moved to the location on U.S. 62 where the building is now.
