‘Show and Tell’ meeting held at library

The Farmville-Prince Edward Historical Society met Jan. 19 for its annual “Show and Tell” meeting. It is always interesting to see what the different members will bring. To mention a few, Shirley Blackwell brought in a small statue of Joan of Arc and Dr. Brent Roberts brought in a 1934 book on Longwood. The society welcomes Roberts as a new member; he is the new dean of the Greenwood Library at Longwood University.

The Prospect Happy Hats met Jan. 5 for its January get together. They made plans for the coming year. Those coming together were Hilda Allen, Doris Bellofatto, Jean Covington, Elfrieda Kerns, Betty Meadows, Ann Norton, Rita Rountree, Pat Smith, Margaret Stockton, Betty Sumner, Jeannette Tarlton and Dolly Worthy.
