All of those who are interested in being a part of the BHS’ mission to preserve and promote the physical and cultural heritage of the extended Brundidge and Pike County communities are invited to attend.“The membership committee wanted to offer an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and learn more about the Brundidge Historical Society and what we do in support of our community,” said Mernette Bray, membership committee chair. “While we would hope the ‘gathering’ would encourage new membership, that is not the main purpose of the meeting. We just want everybody to come and have a good time and learn what ‘piddlin’ around’ is all about.”As with any gathering, there will be food and fellowship and the BHS will toss in some good entertainment and opportunities to win some really great prizes.
