127th Annual Old Folks Day Shaped-Note Singing

Come sing along with shaped-note singers from throughout the region after partaking in a legendary "dinner-on-the-grounds" at around noon. (There's a dumpling pot waiting on a big fat hen - just you wait and see!) Bring a dish to share, but if you are traveling some distance, keep in mind that we've never seen store-bought cookies or a bucket of KFC refused. Beginners are made to feel quite welcome, and someone will take you under their wing as we sing these treasured songs once again. The singing starts at 1:00 pm and goes until we give out at about 3:30. Everyone is welcome to attend the worship services, which begin at 11:00 am.
