David Person hosts small gathering
Charles and Pat Wheeler of Clayton, Ga., and their grandson, Mason O’Brien, of Hogansville, Ga., were the weekend guests of Kay and Laura Wheeler and Mary Clay and Gene Brooks and their children, Caitlyn and Grady.
Glenn and Gladys Fant’s grandsons and their families were here over pilgrimage weekend. Orma and Teri Smith and their children, Stinnett and Hack, of Corinth, and Fant and Collier Smith and their children, Sally and Fant, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., got to catch up with childhood friends over the weekend. Orma brought a beautiful display of his wonderful acrylic paintings to show on the lawn of Montrose.
Walter and Vicki Webb spent Saturday night in Birmingham, Ala., with Patrick and Mary Glen Carlton. The couple travelled over to celebrate Patrick’s birthday.
Bea Green returned Sunday evening from a fun-filled weekend in Washington, DC, where she stayed with Kate and John Green. While there, she spent a lot of time with her grandsons, Jack and Henry.
Rollie Carson and daughter, Anne Kieffer, of Memphis, Tenn., spent Saturday in Holly Springs for the pilgrimage. Anne Kieffer served at Crump Place, home of David Person.
Leigh Douglas has just returned home from having knee surgery in Memphis. She will be convalescing at home. Glad you are back, Ma Leigh!
David Person hosted a small gathering of townsfolk at his “work in progress” home, Burton Place, formerly Fleur de Lis, on Friday night. David utilized the contractor lights, scaffolding and other construction materials to his advantage in decorating the home. The flowers were beautifully arranged in non-traditional holders. The highlight of the evening was to see the masterful painting of Vadah Cochran. His paintings were throughout the home and simply breathtaking.
Once again, the Holly Springs Pilgrimage was a raging success. Tourists from all around came to tour the six homes that were open during the weekend. Locals as well appreciated Airliewood, home of Joe and Kathy Overstreet, being open for the tour. Everyone who toured the home was impressed beyond words at the work the couple has put into it. The gardens of Mike and Jorja Lynn at Walter Place were also a wonderful treat for the visitors to see, especially since the weather cooperated!
Buddy Farris, son of Jane and Charlie Farris, who was one of the Pilgrimage Kings said, “It was fun and a great learning experience. I thoroughly enjoyed touring the homes and learning about their histories.”
