The Sanitation District No. 2 of Boyd County expresses its sincere thanks to Boyd County Jailer Joe Burchett, Deputy Jailer Jerry Bayless, and the men from the Boyd County Detention Center for the excellent job of cutting the weeds around our pump station.

Our pump station is inaccessible by vehicle and the weeds were so high we couldn't get to the station. Deputy Jailer Bayless brought the men down from the detention center and cleared all the brush from around the pump station. The station looks really good and we appreciate all the hard work they did.

The workers were polite and courteous when spoken to. We appreciate the community service provided by the men from the detention center.

The Community Hospice Art for Hospice Chairs for Charity event was a great success. More than 20 very talented local artists and craftsmen contributed 30 chairs, tables, stools and mirrors that were auctioned during October’s First Friday events at the Ann Davis Gallery. The event would not have been possible without their generous donations.

Our thanks to Zoe Ann Brewer of the Ann Davis Gallery for offering her great facility for the event; to Larry Jones, president of Community Trust Bank for their continued support and sponsorship of Chairs for Charity; and to Ed Fairchild of Fairchild Real Estate and Auctioneer Services for his time and talents.

Lastly we thank all those who attended and made purchases. We’re planning for next year’s Chairs for Charity and hope you’ll be a part then, too. Thank you.
