PIKETON, Ohio - Looming thunderstorms and intermittent showers failed to dampen spirits late last week as EM Assistant Secretary Anne White signed documents during a ceremony at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant marking the site's first land transfer to the local community.

In her first visit to the Portsmouth Site as Assistant Secretary, White was joined by other federal officials, state and local leaders, and others to commemorate the transfer of 80 acres of site property to the Southern Ohio Diversification Initiative (SODI). SODI is the community reuse organization representing the four-county area around the former plant.

"Transferring excess property for reuse is an important part of the EM mission, and an example of DOE's commitment to our cleanup communities," White told the gathered stakeholders. "As I look over at the piece of land that's being conveyed, I very much look forward to seeing the community benefit from this property."

Welcome to summer of 2018- the 50th Anniversary of the Pike County Outreach Council of Churches, Inc.

We take this opportunity to share with you the needs of Pike County families and to ask for your help.

Since January, we have provided more than 108,000 meals at our choice food pantry and are asking for your help to continue our ministry. Can you pledge $120 a year to provide your neighbors with nutritious food for their families?

No one should feel the pains of hunger.

We also assist our neighbors quarterly with $30 in emergency help towards their utility bills, medical bills, or other necessities.

$150 a year could make a big difference in the lives of Pike County families!!

Please help us help our neighbors!

Thank you, 

Pike County Outreach Council of Churches Inc.
