Words of Thanks

ASHLAND — Grassland Community Methodist Church extends its heartfelt thanks to the Boyd County Detention Center. After contacting Boyd County Jailer Joe Burchett, he and Gary Shockey graciously put together a crew to work along the entrance to our church on Bear Creek Road, Catlettsburg.

The inmates were very diligent in the cutting, mowing and cleaning along the creek bank. We appreciate their generosity and certainly benefited from this special program offered by Boyd County.

We, the trustees would like to personally thank the Boyd County Detention Center for the time and effort put forth on this endeavor.
