Community Calendar

  • Date October 1
The 8th Annual Massey School and Community Reunion will be held Saturday, October 1st, from 2:00 to 5:00 at the Massey Volunteer Fire Department at 386 Evergreen Road. The reunion was first held in 2009 as a way to bring students and staff from the former Massey Schools together to share memories, photos and memorabilia of their years at the schools. The schools included were Old Massey, New Massey, Windes and Cedars. The reunion has grown over the years to include all of the Massey Community, inviting everyone living in Massey now or in the past ---- or just with an interest in the community's history. There will be displays from the schools, churches, stores, gin, clubs, and this year the tornadoes.

There have been several tornadoes that hit our community but the four we are featuring were: March 21, 1932 - March 22, 1952 - April 24, 1955 and April 8, 1957. The 52 and 55 were F4s and the 57 an F3 according to the National Weather Service. We are collecting personal stories, photos and newspaper articles about the tornadoes. We want to chronicle the places damaged and the people involved, but also how so many came together to help in the recovery. There are some very sad stories, some amazing stories and even a few moments of humor. If anyone has a story or photo to share please contact Frances Vest Rowe at 256-462-3875 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

October 15th is no ordinary day - it's the Anniversary of the very first Ronald McDonald House and Day of Change. Find those pennies, dimes, nickels and quarters in couch cushions and under the seats in your car and put them to good use. Head to your local McDonald's and drop your change to make a change.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers faces emergency need for all blood types, and encourages the community to donate blood. Summer is historically a slow time for blood donations due to travel and school breaks, and this summer continues to be a challenge not only to LifeSouth, but to blood centers across the country. When tragedy strikes, like the catastrophic floods in Louisiana, neighboring blood centers are asked to help supply hospitals in areas affected. This is difficult when blood supplies are low. LifeSouth encourages donors to come in to one of their donor centers or find a blood drive location on their website, www.lifesouth.org. First time donors are always welcome and encouraged to give blood donation a try. All donors are important to help meet the needs of the local blood supply.
