Homecoming 2012

Thanks to all who came out to share food and fellowship during Pennytown Homecoming 2012. Over 75 people were present at both the morning service at the Church and at lunch at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Marshall. Due to generous donations, Friends of Pennytown raised monies needed to pay for ongoing improvements to the Freewill Baptist Church as well as annual insurance and utility costs. We thank all of you for your support and look forward to seeing you again next year.

Until then, enjoy this clip of Charles Finley leading gatherers in song on August 5th. More images and video to come . . .
