Congratulations to Gary and Nelda Risher, recently chosen by the Forest Area Chamber of Commerce, as Citizens of the Year for 2020. All agree this is a superb choice!!
The Chamber, in coordination with the City of Forest officials, are working on plans to properly recognize Gary and Nelda in the midst of this pandemic, and will be making those announcements soon.
Allen Breland flew to New York City last Wednesday and accompanied daughter Marianna back to Mississippi in a father/daughter road trip. They stopped at several points of interest along the way and enjoyed hikes in Virginia and Tennessee. They returned to Forest on Sunday, where Marianna continues to work remotely during the pandemic.
Recent guests of Irene Martin were Shirley Jones and Patty Socha of Walnut Grove.
Ben Kenna of Charlotte, North Carolina, arrived in Forest on Monday for a visit in the home of his parents, Joey and Lynne Kenna.
We are keeping former Forest residents Dr. Jim and Beverly McKenzie Ashmore in our thoughts. Both have had surgeries in the past few months, and Jim is glad to finally be home, following his release from rehab. Son-in-law Mike Pitts (daughter Stephanie Ashmore Pitts’ husband) is doing well, following last week’s second hip replacement. The Ashmore’s granddaughter, Meredith Pitts, is also recovering from knee surgery in Birmingham. Won’t we all be glad to see 2020 come to an end! Let’s begin working on our 2021 New Year’s Resolutions soon!!
