Each year, the Wilson County Black History Committee celebrates the seniors – men and women in the community age 70 and older – at a luncheon that honors their achievements and accomplishments.
“Their work and their lives continue to inspire us all,” said Mary Harris, WCBHC president. “We want to give our seniors the recognition they deserve.”
The ninth annual Seventy Plus luncheon will be held Saturday, Nov. 7, at Pickett-Rucker United Methodist Church, 633 Glover Street in Lebanon. The event will begin at noon.
“We would like to ask members of the community to submit names and telephone numbers of seniors in your church and in the Wilson County Community,” Harris said. “In order for us to be successful, we need your support.”
Names may be submitted by phone to WCBHC at the Roy Bailey African American History Museum, 449-2911; you may send information by email to the Wilson County Black History Committee Web site, firstname.lastname@example.org.
