The 21st Annual “Homecoming” for all Elk Cotton Mills retirees, former employees, and their families will be held Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Fayetteville Recreation Center at 1203 Winchester Highway in Fayetteville.
Fellowship, along with sharing of photos and memorabilia, will begin with a “Walk Down Memory Lane” at 11 a.m., followed by lunch at 1 p.m. Angie’s Catering of Fayetteville will provide a buffet meal. Cost is $11.50 for adults and $6 for children ages 10 and under.
Reservations can be made by contacting Margaret Syler at (931) 433-1315, Janice Mills Zielinski at (256) 539-0042, or Carol Ann Pigg at (931) 625-4164. In order to pay up-front expenses and to calculate the correct number of attendees for the catering requirements, the committee requests that participants make all payments in advance. As a bonus, all people who make their meal reservations in advance may put their names in the drawing for door prizes.
That being said, the reunion committee heartily thanks all the businesses and individuals who have, over the years, provided gifts and surprises for the drawings.
Local entertainment will be provided, and there will be both individual and group-led singing. If you have a story to tell — the only yarn-spinning allowed — a song to sing, or a musical instrument to play, contact the planning committee and let them know as soon as possible, so your name can be added to the program. In the interest of time, entertainment will be limited to a total of 30 minutes, and will be planned prior to the event.
