At its September 25th Board of Commissioners meeting, Davidson declared October 13th as "Lingle Hut Day" in town. This proclamation supports the ongoing fundraising efforts to raise money for the restoration of the historic building on Watson Street at Reeves Temple AME Zion Church. See the proclamation below.
aShortChronicle previously told readers about the project where church members and local volunteers are hard at work planning to restore the site which had previousmy served as a gathering place in the Westside community. The initial phase of the effort needs $20,000 primarily to fix the foundation of the building, and to date more than half of that sum has been raised. Volunteers have been selling engraved bricks at the Farmers Market for the effort among other donations, but this Saturday, 10/13 will be the biggest push yet with a Carnival at the Church.
Plan on hitting the Farmers Market then heading over to Watson Street. It will be a great way to support the community, and in this case, literal community building efforts.
