Back by popular demand is the rambunctious silent auction. Please bring items to donate. This was a huge boost to the reunion fund and added entertainment to the day! Any white elephants or crafts or uniquely Ambrose items are welcome!

Those who would like can also bring salads or desserts as we try to keep some of the home-cooked flavor!
Jean Robinson will have copies of her books to view. She has put a lot of time and energy into recreating our history for us. You can order the books from Jean at the reunion!

Davenport Homestead Heritage Day is also happening on that Saturday just a few doors down from the church. Admission is free. They will have exhibits showing examples or early life along the Scuppernong River. Included is the restored 1770’s home, loom house, salt house, corn crib, smoke house and out house. There will be live entertainment and old time food and crafts for sale.
