Jay Hill celebrated his 21st birthday. He is a 4th generation logger (and avid reader of Southern Logging Times).
Jay will graduate with an associate’s degree in forestry from Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in December. He currently works with his Papa, owner of Ray W. Floyd Logging. Jay’s great granddaddy Ray Floyd was a first generation logger and also owned Ray Floyd Sawmill in Troy, Alabama. Incidentally, the wood on the mantle and fire place in the picture is black walnut cut and milled by Floyd.
The cake was made by Shelby Atwell (Jay’s fiancé) and Connie Floyd (Jay’s grandmother). Connie owns Olde Enzor Lane, a catering and cake business, in Troy.
