People & Places, Sunday, Oct. 26

Sharing Yadkin Mill Village memories
The 8th Yadkin Mill Village Reunion was held Sept. 27 at the Yadkin Baptist Church fellowship building with about 35 present. Pastor Gary Hauze was the special guest with good news to share about plans for a museum across the street from Yadkin United Church. The news that Yadkin may come back to life again was welcome for the people who have prayed for this, where so many grew up and had wonderful memories of the place they called home. Everyone enjoyed the food and talking about special memories.
Gifts were given to those who had traveled the farthest, Trudy Parker Hassenplug and husband Bill.
The oldest female present was Irene Parker Clark and the oldest male was Ernest Lanning.
Any artifacts or anything from the past pertaining to Yadkin memories would be helpful. Call Gary Hauze at 704-638-0871. Plans are already in progress for the next reunion in 2015.
