Following a storm which affected parts of Hopkins County early Thursday, March 14, a few damage reports came in to KSST. One of those was from tree damage at the Reilly Springs Community Center. A large tree was uprooted and fell across a driveway to the Community Center which connects it to the Reilly Springs Baptist Church next door. Apparently, the tree had a weakened root system. There was no injury and no damage to any building, however, removal of the massive tree called for a united effort. Cutting up of the limbs was done on Friday, and removal was scheduled for Saturday morning. At least six families showed up with pickups and trailers. A couple of tractors also helped to push the debris together and to load the trailers. By early afternoon, the area was clear and ready for crowds attending the Reilly Springs Jamboree that evening.
