Information from Amelia McGough

Amelia McGough reports that the McGough family is very close to being able to move back to their property at 5055 Edmonton Road, Columbia, KY in the Gradyville Community of Adair County, after losing their home in a fire a few weeks ago.

She said many have volunteered to help in a Community Work day and they appreciate the interest - it is set for Saturday, August 26, 2017 from 8am-8pmCT.

McDonald's of Columbia will be providing lunch for 25 people around noon so she asks that volunteers please call Kerry Yates at 270-250-3771, or her at 270-805-8726 to let them know.

She says there are lots of small projects that need to be done from closing up ditches to building short walls, moving materials, painting, cleaning and sheetrock fixing to mowing and weed-eating (please bring weedeaters - there is a LOT of high grass and weeds) plus building a fence for the dogs.

She asks that if anyone has access to a 36" storm door, that is a priority, as well as insulation, since there is no insulation in this building.
