A very pivotal figure in Powhatan life passed away this week. Mary Harris was 89 years old, the mother of our own Mary Margaret Dickerson and grandmother of Mary Elizabeth Dickerson. Mrs. Harris was a lifetime member of our community and was an incredibly generous example to everyone.
The funeral is tomorrow and we need your help with food.
If you feel led to contribute food for the Dickerson family following Mary Harris's funeral, you may deliver it to Red Lane Baptist tomorrow, ideally b/w 2:00 and 4:00, but someone will be at the church beginning at noon if you need to deliver earlier. The funeral will be at 5:00. If you are attending the funeral and would like to help with the food end (setting up, boxing, etc.) you are more than welcome. The kitchen in Red Lane is in the basement of the church; I would go in through that bottom, side door. Follow the hall until you can turn right. Go down the ramp to the kitchen.
The family is so appreciative of your support, as is Red Lane. Many of their cooking folks are in Norfolk on a mission trip, so they are thrilled that we are helping with food!
Thanks for your care for this family!
