Honoring the state champs

A photography show honoring the Lady Buffaloes State Championship opens Monday evening at Jeri Rogers Photography Studio in the Village Green.

Jeri and her husband, Floyd attorney Jonathan Rogers, became avid fans of the team during their championship run and Jeri decided to shoot a free portrait of each member of the team to honor their season.

I’ve added an action show of each player to the show and we will present each player an 11 x 14 portriat and action photo as part of the show.

Photographing high school sports has been one of the special joys of returning to Floyd County after all these years and watching the girls’ team reach their goal of a state championship made this season special.  This was a year of state championships with the golf Golf Team winning and Tyler Beckner taking a wrestling title.

Please drop by if you get a change. Jeri’s studio is in the back area of shops in The Village Green and the public is welcome at an opening reception Monday at 7 p.m.  The show will continue at Jeri’s studio for the spring and summer. (Photo and poster by Jeri Rogers)

A lot of help for Karlie

A large crowd packed Ray’s Restaurant on U.S. 221 north of Floyd Sunday for a benefit brunch to help Karlie Nichols, the young local girl suffering from cystic fibrosis.

One of Floyd County’s many assets is the willingness of citizens to support causes that help those in need. We saw that in the overwhelming support for Chance Harmon and Joshua Cantrell, two young boys who died last year from brain cancer. We see it in upcoming Cruisin4Charities benefi for the Medical Charities of Floyd County.

If you missed the breakfast this morning, mark June 14 on your calendar and come see Rhonda Vincent, Nothin’ Fancy, The Comptons & Friends, Mark Lewis & Friends and Bernie Coveney at Friends agt Floyd County High School. Details at Crusin4Charities..
