    We have joined our local high school to help students from tornado sticken Menifee, Morgan and Wolfe counties.  Their project is to make sure these students still have a prom.  The girls are lending their dresses to the girls and Genos is allowing us to rent tuxes for a DEEPLY discounted price.  We are asking for sponcors.  The cost is $30 and covers the tux and shoe rental.  Money will be collected only after you receive the name of the student.  If you would like to help, you can contact us at 606.663.4291 or email parkwayflorist@yahoo.com.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Evelyn's was destroyed by fire, water and smoke on Feb 8, 2012. The fire started from a kitchen fire in a rental apartment next door to the shop. Our son Erin Moore had purchassed the shop from Jim Holloway in the fall of 2010.  We are trying to re group and find a new location. The shop has the same location since 1959.     We encourage everyone in the association to review their insurance policy.  Coverage for replacement cost and loss of business income should be a part of your policy.
