About Stay In Clay

"Stay In Clay" is comprised of progressive Clay County residents who have come together to cross all boundaries of race, economic, and social class, to empower our people, bond our community, and strengthen our local economy...to move Clay County forward with pride and purpose.

Stay in Clay is a group formed to help boost the spirit, pride, and morale of our people and help improve the look and condition of our hometown/county. We want Manchester and Clay County to be the place people want to live, stay, retire, visit, come home to!

This dedicated organization has completed swinging bridges restoration projects, created promotional murals,  organizes special events and established a story telling theater called Monkey Dumplin’s. And we’re just getting started. Many more projects are in the works.

In the Beginning…

“If you don’t do something your town is going to die.” 

Those were the words of Dr. Vaughn Grisham following his tour through Clay County in late summer 2012.  Approximately 25 people attended the meeting to hear what Dr. Grisham had to say.  A small group of 4 local woman was in the crowd.  The words pierced deep as they left the meeting thinking “We must do something.  We cannot let our town die.”

Scholarships were made available for several people to attend the Brushy Fork Annual Institute at Berea College.  Margy Miller, Amy Dunzweiler, Tammy Pennington and Vanda Rice were among those attending this conference with people from all across Appalachia all trying to keep their towns from dying.  It was at the close of this institute that the small committed group called “Stay In Clay” became reality.  Stay In Clay has grown many times over since 2012 and is a recognized nonprofit group made up of volunteers trying to change the world but have chosen to begin with their very own Clay County.
