This year’s Homecoming will be held at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church on Sunday, August 5th. All are welcome to join us for food, worship, and fellowship beginning at 10:00 AM. Worship will be at 11:00 and a ham and fried chicken lunch will be served at noon ($5.00 donation).
The Friends of Pennytown Church would like to thank all who attended the 2011 Homecoming celebration for their continued support. This year we raised over $800 from donations, offerings, and the raffle.
Congratulations to the raffle winners:
Framed Jerry Ellis Print — Sharon Brayer
Visa Gift Card — Darlene Small
Autographed Basketball — Stacy Lawrence
Thanks also to James Madison and the Buffalo Soldier Re-enactors, as well as all others who contributed in any way to another successful Homecoming.
We hope many of you will be able to join us this Sunday at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church at 11:30 AM for worship, fellowship, and lunch. Note that Homecoming will begin earlier this year so we can avoid the heat as much as possible. All are welcome!
The 2011 Homecoming gathering will be held on Sunday, August 7th at the Pennytown Historic Site. As always, there will be a raffle that afternoon with prizes being awarded (you need not be present to win). Tickets will be available the day of Homecoming and will also be sold in advance by Friends of Pennytown members. The money received from the raffle will be used to support the Pennytown Historic Site.

Thanks to everyone who joined us out at Pennytown on August 2nd. It was another wonderful homecoming with good food and fellowship. Thanks also to our special guest and speaker Mark Miles, and to all those who contributed time, labor, and money.
We would not be able to maintain the church and grounds without your generosity. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Homecoming 2008 has come and gone. Our special guest was Warren Read, author of The Lyncher in Me: A Search for Redemption in the Face of History. Below are some pictures from that gathering.
