The public is invited to the annual VFW Memorial Day Program on Sunday, May 26, 2019. The program begins at 2:30pmCT at Columbia VFW Post 6097 located at 500 Greenhills Road, Columbia, KY.
As we remember all our lost comrades, this year we will be putting emphasis on our Prisoners of War and Missing in Action brothers and sisters. This will be achieved by a formal installation of the POW/MIA Table by a group of Veterans of the "US Veteran Motorcycle Club" from Bowling Green, KY.
The program is very emotional to veterans and I am sure to the public at large. It is not a lengthy program, and will be held in our post hall. Then we'll move outside for the salute to our fallen brothers and sisters.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

J.O.Y. Ministries is kicking off its campaign to raise $12,000 to build an emergency shelter for the homeless on the county parking lot beside the 911 Call Center.
A thermometer at the historic Courthouse will track the progress of this campaign. Earlier this winter, Adair County agreed to rent J.O.Y. a portion of the parking lot for the purpose of building a shelter to be maintained by J.O.Y. and its volunteers and donations.
To build this building, J.O.Y. is asking the community to step forward to donate funds towards the project. Already, J.O.Y. has received a $1,000 private grant from the Motz Corporation and a $1,200 gift from the local Ministerial Association to kick off the project. For years, the Ministerial Association housed homeless folks. Now, they are supporting J.O.Y. to take the reigns on this effort. A portion of the offering at the Association's Lenten Services will go towards the building project.
If you are interested in donating, please send a check to J.O.Y. Ministries at P.O. Box 114, Columbia, KY 42728 with the word "Shelter" on the memo line. You can also give via PayPal at www.joy-ministries.org and write "Shelter" in the notes section. If you have any questions, please contact Maggie Coleman at 704-281-3055.
