Benefit slated for Carson and Conner

Twins Carson and Conner Lovelady will turn 14 in August. The twin boys, sons of Stephanie Howse Lovelady and Chris Lovelady of Hartselle are students at Hartselle Junior High School. They were both recently inducted into the National Honor Society at HJHS. Both boys were also born with congenital muscular dystrophy and are mostly confined to wheelchairs for mobility.

As they grow older the care they require becomes more difficult for their parents and those who help to take care of the boys. In fact one of the issues they face is something many of us take for granted. Being able to get into and out of a shower or bath has become an issue for their Mom.

The home they live in with their mom on Sunshine Street in Hartselle needs a handicap accessible bathroom along with a lift system to help move the twins in and out of the tub and shower. The plans are to enclose the garage at the home and add a bath for the two boys with everything being handicap accessible. This will include lower sinks that their motorized wheelchairs will fit under and enable the boys to roll up to the sink, as well as the lift that will help get the boys in and out of the tub.

In order to help fund this project, Gurley’s Soggy Bottom Barn will be hosting a special day for Conner and Carson. The event will be held on Sat., June 11, from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. The event will include and old-fashioned all day gospel singing and food will be available for purchase as well, for those attending.

The singing groups include Glory Road Quartet, with the twins’ grandfather Charles Howse being a member, King’s Messengers Quartet, Fellowship Quartet, Doug Moss Trusting Grace Trio, Living Faith Singers, A Chord Trio and David Bates. The groups will perform all day during the event.

Food choices will include your choice of pork or chicken plates, with beans, slaw, rolls or chips for $10 per plate. For the younger crowd, hot dogs and chips will be available for $3. Pepsi, coffee and tea will also be available for those attending the event.

Proceeds from the food sales along with a love offering being taken will go to help Conner and Carson have the accessible bathroom they need at their Mom’s home.

The public is invited to this event to enjoy the gospel music, food and fellowship.

For more information contact Joel Gurley at 256-606-7083 or Charles Howse at 256- 565-4235. Gurley’s Soggy Bottom Barn is located 1-1/4 mile from Hwy. 36 and 67 Intersection, off Hwy. 67, right on Couey Road.
