Message below from Laura Sweat- Anderson researcher and contributor to the delightful Anderson Family History Book

Hello everyone!
   This is a reminder that the Saturday after Labor Day (in September) is
our annual Anderson Family Reunion.  This year, the Hopewell Methodist Church has decided to build a metal building to replace the shelter that granddaddy built.  It's not known at this time if we will be using the new's supposed to be finished, but I haven't heard any more about it. 
   Look forward to seeing you in September!
