A 50-year celebration will be held to honor Patsy Palmer Hampton on Sunday, Aug. 17, at 10:45 a.m. at Republican Christian Church.
Hampton has given 50 years of service to her church. She began playing the organ at church when she was 15 years old.
Hampton said she began taking piano lessons from Irene Smith, who played for the First United Methodist Church in Cynthiana, when she was in the first grade. She continued taking lessons through high school and even one college class. Each of the other four Palmer sisters also took piano lessons from Mrs. Smith.
