Herb Alsup, recently retired from Woodbury Church of Christ, has been chosen the subject of the seventh annual Friends of Adams Library roast this year.
The roast will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the Woodbury Church of Christ beginning at 7 o’clock.
All proceeds from the roast will go toward the completion of the addition/ renovation of Adams Memorial Library.
After a delicious meal is served, four of Herb’s “friends” will proceed to tell the audience some of their experiences with him or something in which he has been involved that many will hear for the first time. The roasters include Dr. Billy Smith, Dean of Bible at Freed-Hardeman University, Henderson, Tenn., Freddie Goodwin, noted entertainer/ producer or Murfreesboro and a high school pal of Alsup, Mike Corley, McMinnville attorney and Tim Knox, principal of Cannon County High School and youth minister at Woodbury Church of Christ.
The public is invited to attend this event and may do so by making reser-vations prior to April 22 by calling Charlie Harrell, president of the Friends of the Library group at 563-5480 or calling the library at 563-5861.
The tickets are $30 each with the entire amount going to the building fund of the library. Additional con-tributions in honor of Herb may be made to the building fund at this time.
The cost of the meal is being underwritten by the following: Platinum spon-sors Smith Funeral Home, Farmers Coop, First National Bank, Reed Realty and First Bank. Gold sponsors are Potters Ace Hardware and Woodbury Funeral home.
The Friends of Adams Memorial Library is a group of volunteers who work year-round to help the professional staff at the library provide services not financed in the city and county budgets.
The library expansion and renovation project is virtually completed. a Grand Reopening and Open House was celebrated on Sunday, March 17 with more than 250 contributors and well-wishers attending. Plans are to complete landscaping the property and the addition of other fixtures and furniture as funds become available.
