After celebrating a wonderful weekend with family we are home! Really enjoyed a few days with my daughter Anjanette Montano from Hedgesville, West Virginia! So hard to believe on Wednesday she and her husband will be boarding a plane traveling to New Mexico to enjoy a reunion with his family!
Monday night The Essie J. Handy Historical Association had the opportunity to share with the Mayor and Council our vision for the Handy cemetery. Even though there are other things that are taking priority we just wanted to show them our hopes for future plans concerning beautification of this city cemetery. We felt so honored to have in attendance the late Mrs. Handy’s son and wife Albert and Cathy Handy of Long Island New York, daughter Mrs. Hattie Handy Manning of LaFayette and grandson Mr. Marty Nunn of Atlanta, Ga. Kudos to the city for cutting down the pine trees at the entrance of the cemetery. I would like to invite everyone to a work day planned Saturday June 24th at the cemetery located 402 B Street SW in LaFayette, 8am till noon refreshments will be available. Lets all join together for the betterment of our community!
