What a great time this afternoon at the New River Historical Society and the Wilderness Road Regional Museum! Dr. Dan Thorpe of VT (pictured left) spoke on the topic, "The Extraordinary Life of Zacharic Carr." The topic was about "free people of color." The topic was about black or mixed ancestry, but they were never slaves. What important things for us to learn and understand about our community. ... See MoreSee Less

Here's a picture of the inside back wall of the sanctuary at Christ Episcopal Church in Pulaski. While cleaning and repairs were being made there, the original brick wall -- underneath the later plaster -- has been discovered. Although the formation of the congregation dates back to MacGill Memorial Church in 1875, the current building dates from 1907. Thanks, Ron Hall, for making this historic discovery and preserving it.

Today, Christ Church was the locale for a memorial service for The Rev. Vickie L. Holk who had been priest here since 1996. Vickie planned the service in advance (she encouraged us all to make such preparations as well!). We remembered her for her big laugh, her intellect, her strong, civic involvement, and her deep compassion for those in need. And she could speak truth to the powerful.

Vickie was a pioneer in the Episcopal Church as a role model for women priests. The service today reflected that commitment. In Town, we will always remember her commitment to the Social Services Board and her stint as Chair. She was a founding member of the Friends of Peak Creek, Inc., that grew out of the Town's Economic Development Board (aka, Brownfields' Task Force).

As a show of respect for Vickie's life and commitments, Town Manager, Shawn Utt; Mayor Nick Glenn; and former Mayor Jeff Worrell were present at her celebration of life along with many board members of Social Services, the Friends of Peak Creek, and the Town's Economic Development Board. Her neighbors were there as well.

Rest in peace, good and faithful servant of God and community.
