There also will be a “Smoke House” for visitors to go through, as well as fire safety tips for children.
Bluegrass and gospel groups will be providing music, and visitors will be able to tour the museum and see the progress being made on the restoration of the various rooms in the old Patterson School.
Cofounder Bobby Mault promises that a lot of changes have occurred since last year.
We Care Ministry will be sponsoring and selling its ‘“Backyard BBQ.” Food tickets are available in advance for $7 by calling 704-857-3208 to place your order.
