Ralph and Fern Dunnavant, of Dillwyn, visited her mother, Myrle Gibson, of Covington, on Wednesday, Aug. 3, and also with other family members. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of them.

A special birthday party was held last Sunday at the home of T.J. and Stephanie Waycaster of Powhatan for their daughter, CeCe, who turned 5 years old. Everyone had a nice time.

The Cumberland County Community Food Bank partnering with The Central Virginia Food Bank, a FeedMore Program of Richmond, will distribute food to Cumberland County residents, including Cartersville residents, Monday from 11:30 a.m. until all food is gone at the old Cumberland County Elementary School Cafeteria next door to the gym, 1874 Anderson Hwy. You must have already registered to get food or you must see the director Jerry Seal. All food recipients please bring bags.

Also on Monday, you may apply for USDA Foods if you have not already done so. Those of you that have already applied and have been approved will be able to pick up your USDA food along with your other regular food.
