Corinth West Methodist will hold All Day Singing Aug. 28

 

All day singing and dinner on the ground was common in the rural areas several decades ago. Churches added fellowship halls with dining space and kitchens.

At noon, lunch will be enjoyed in the fellowship hall. The old outdoor table under the shade trees was torn down years ago. The afternoon singing is one of the best in the state.

There are two pianos and talented musicians to play, plus some banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle and bass fiddle playing also. The singing is known as the Doyle Walker Memorial. Doyle was chairman for many years. The late Doyle and Stella Walker lived in the area and raised their family there. Their daughter, the late Kathryn Walker Maddox will be missed. The closing song “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” is a congregation song and very spirited with all of the instruments. Everyone is welcome to attend.
