A Community Tradition

My community extends farther than just my little 40 acres. In the years I have lived here, I have seen many lovely community events all around me.

Each year there is the annual Bruno Fire Department Fish Fry held to raise money for the volunteer fire department. People from all the surrounding area come for fried catfish, hush puppies, music, and fellowship.

The nearby community of Anderson Flat has a central location of the Old School House and Cemetery. People gather there throughout the year to celebrate the 4th of July with an old fashioned day of games, food and fireworks. They have an old fashioned Christmas celebration, and Decoration Day is held in May as a celebration to reunite family and friends and to honor and remember their loved ones who are buried there.

I go to church in a little community called St. Joe. And there I attended another community event just a couple of weekends ago.

It was the 14th Annual Free Gospel Music Fest held at Edna Lou's Music Park, which is located right across the road from the church I attend. Edna Lou is a retired music teacher who loves music and seeks to promote music throughout the area.
