All Area Catholic Picnic set for
July 17 at Greenbrier State Forest
The all area Catholic Picnic, sponsored by the Greenbrier Valley Knights of Columbus, will be held Sunday, July 17, beginning at 2 p.m. in Shelter #1 of the Greenbrier State Forest, just south of I-64 Caldwell/White Sulphur Springs Exit.
“We are pleased to invite all Catholics and their families to join us with this summer tradition,” newly elected Grand Knight Andrew Wrzosek of Waiteville, Monroe County, said, who added, “This is not just for those in Greenbrier, Pocahontas, and Monroe County but also for the Catholics and their families in Alleghany, Bath, and Craig counties in Virginia.”
The Knights of Columbus will provide the hamburgers and hot dogs, all the fixings, all the paper products, drinks, plasticware and all the Knights ask is that each household bring a covered dish to share. Mike Williams of Maxwelton, financial secretary of the GV Knights, also encouraged families to bring outdoor game equipment. A vesper service will be held in the Shelter around 4 p.m. and a limited number of swimming pool passes will be available for children who wish to visit the GSF pool after the picnic. For further information, contact the Office of the Catholic Churches of the Greenbrier Valley 304-536-1813 or the Knights of Columbus GV Council 8689 304-645-1373.

Annual Ketron Church and Community Homecoming 1902-2022
Date: Sunday, Aug. 7, at 11 a.m.
Please join us once again to celebrate the legacy of Ketron Church, worship, and reunite with old friends. We hope that everyone has been safe from the COVID-19 virus this past year and that you are vaccinated and boosted. Masks will be available. The church is located on Rockland Road, 3 miles below Ronceverte. The speaker this year will be Al Morgan of Princeton. Following the worship service we will gather at the Frank Whanger Picnic Shelter for a pot-luck lunch and a brief business meeting. Everyone is invited to attend. Paper products and utensils will be provided. Please notify Karen West of any persons you would like added to the memorial list. Because the Homecoming was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 and attendance at the reunion has been sparse, very few contributions have been received. Your donations for the upkeep of the church and mowing the cemetery are becoming more critical every year. If you have loved ones buried in the Ketron cemetery and cannot attend, please consider mailing a generous donation to Ketron Church in care of the Ketron treasurer at the address listed below. We look forward to seeing you! Stay safe! Treasurer, Karen West, P.O. Box 251, Ronceverte, WV 24970.
