The Annual Candlelight Christmas Tour was another outstanding event.

A list of our sponsors will appear on this site in the near future.


The Silent Auction and Sale of the Margaret Deloatch Collection was a huge success. Thank you to all of the volunteers and buyers who came and purchased the beautiful antique and vintage items.


A very special Thank You to all of our great volunteers who made MHA's Watermelon Festival events a success. Whether you worked at the  Hot Fudge Booth, the Jefcoat Chicken/BBQ Dinner, Book Sales, or the Miscellaneous Sales Tent, they were all fortunate to make sales. Those of you who could not work but made monetary donations, we always appreciate the cash to spend as needed for specific supplies.
