Family volunteers from North Carolina were hard at work last week helping Plato Shepherd (foreground), pastor of the Cottonwood Valley Independent Baptist Church, renovate its new meetingplace. The young church recently acquired the building on the 100 block of C Street, which was originally built as a drive-in restaurant and most recently housed Bartel Insurance Agency.
