The community of Hume was saddened by the loss of one of our long-time community members, Bob King. I have many fond memories growing up and staying at their house. Bob started and organized the County-Line 4-H club 50 years ago and many children have benefited from this endeavor. He was a very active member of our community. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed no only by his family, but his Church family and friends.
