The Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library needs your help. Your presence this Saturday any time between 9:00 a.m. and noon will help us fulfill part of the activities that we outlined in the LSTA grant that we were awarded this year. Will you bring an old photo, letter, document or entire collection related to Brundidge families, businesses, churches, etc., to the library any time between 9 and noon on Saturday? We would like to make a copy for our Local History & Genealogy collection. Did your mom, dad, grandfather, grandmother play a part in Brundidge ? If so, will you share your old photograph or document with us or let us make a copy? Students from the Pike County High School Business & Finance Academy will be here Saturday to help make a digital copy of your contribution. Please, participate, so these students will have some items to preserve.
