Ray Bibb has helped his neighbors all his life. He carried a high school classmate who was badly injured in a hunting accident up the stairs at school in the days before handicap accessible buildings. He supplies wood every winter for an elderly couple whose only source of heat is a wood
stove.

Saturday night his neighbors and others in the Lovingston community turned out to help Ray in his fight against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Folks came to enjoy food, beverages, music and a silent auction at Lovingston Opry. All the proceeds were donated to Ray for assistance with the expenses of his treatment.
