POINT PLEASANT — When residents within this community are facing hardships, the rest of the community comes together to help in anyway they can.
Kevin Nott, of the WBYG Radio Station and voice for the Point Pleasant Big Blacks football, has been in the hospital for almost six months and is currently back at The Ohio State University where he had undergone a serious surgery at the beginning of this long road, facing complications on the way.
“He has been through so much. He has a long way to go. We are just thankful and blessed he is still here with us,” said Nicole Nott, Kevin’s wife.
To help Nott’s family with medical and travel expenses, members of the Bellemead United Methodist Church along with assistance from area churches and other area volunteers have organized a benefit spaghetti dinner and auction. The event is set for Sunday, April 7 at the Point Pleasant Junior/Senior High School (PPJ/SHS) Commons Area from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The meals are either dine in or carryout, $8 per person for ages 12 and up, and donation for those under 12 years of age.
“We would like to thank our small town and community for their support during this time. We are truly blessed to live where we do, we cannot thank everyone enough,” said Nicole. “Kevin has worked in radio for 25 years and loves his community so much. Point Pleasant is like a big family, we all come together and help when it’s needed. We are blessed. Also, thank you to the school for letting them hold the benefit. Kevin loves and misses his Big Blacks family. We are just thankful.”
Though Nicole is exhausted as she has not wavered in staying by her husband’s side, she continues to get strength from God daily, she said.
