hope each of you had a wonderful Fourth of July.

Prospect Historical Society met Tuesday.

Family reunions are always a lot of fun. The fellowship hall at Appomattox P.E. Presbyterian Church at Tuggle was buzzing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as 125 family members of the Kelsey family came together to catch up on everything. They started out on Friday night with a meal in the fellowship hall after which they went into the church for a memorial service to those who had passed in the last five years.
