Celebration held in Halls Mill

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

It's more than a community club -- it's a community.

And it's just east of the Marshall County border near Chapel Hill.

The Triangle Community Club in Halls Mill is where residents of the area gather for meetings, picnics, dancing and more. And last weekend, they got together for the community center, not just at it.

"The heating and air unit is in great need of repair," Daphne Motes explained. "We used a lot of fuel last year, which depleted our funds."

Motes said the building also needs painting and some other repairs. She and several others coordinated a "Heritage Days" celebration in Halls Mill last Friday and Saturday to help raise funds for the clubhouse.

"The idea came from Randall Crowell and Earl Adcock," said Motes, Crowell's niece. "They both have antique tractors and antique farm equipment and have gone to several area shows. They thought this would be a good way to do that."

"It was just something to bring people out," Paschal said. "Knowing how big the talent shows are now, we thought that would be something people would like. People enjoy listening to the various talents around the community."

Other planned events included a dunking booth, fish pond, pedal-tractor race, demonstrations of wheat threshing and of German shepherds trained in rescue and other service.
