By Lynn Blankenship

Martha Gilliland Long will be the featured speaker at this year’s annual meeting to be held Sunday, June 4th at the Father’s House Fellowship Hall, 704 E. Commerce St. beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Their ranch house and the 1850s stone cabin are located by the springs that are the headwaters of Cherokee Creek.
