Paragould, AR--After serving
When Balcom began the home had only four cottages for children. Next year they will complete construction on the tenth cottage for the facility. They have also added a number of other buildings to the campus as well.
On Saturday the annual open house and fish fry was turned into a retirement ceremony. There weren’t too many tears from people in the packed gymnasium, but many formed a long line afterwards to wish Balcom and his family well.
