Published 1:56 pm Friday, January 13, 2023

Let’s start off this week in the Trent’s Mill News by talking about an anniversary. The Buckingham County Christian Fellowship Association, a non-profit organization, will be entering their 35th year as a group. Their first regular monthly meeting for members and prospective members has been rescheduled due to circumstances beyond our control from Saturday, Jan. 14 to Saturday, Feb. 11. It’ll be held at 1 p.m. at Fork Union Baptist Church, located at 4745 James Madison Highway in Fork Union. 

All members  are cordially invited to attend and bring a covered dish for the meal.  Following this will be the annual business meeting. Meanwhile, the group’s board of directors meeting has also been rescheduled. Originally set for Monday, Jan. 9, it will now take place on Monday, Feb. 6. That will be in the meeting room of Buckingham County Public Library, where the board will make plans for the 2023 year.

The Cumberland County Landfill Alert Committee, a non-profit organization, will be hosting their regular monthly meeting on Sunday, Feb. 12. The meeting will be at 3 p.m. at 71 Community Center Drive in Cumberland. The continued purpose of these meetings is to inform Cumberland County residents and surrounding counties about the serious impact this Mega Landfill will have on you and your neighbors, giving you the most current update.
