Browns Chapel to host benefit gospel sing

The Cumberland County Landfill Alert Committee will host its regular monthly meeting Sunday, May 16, at 3 p.m. at the Cumberland County Community Center located at 45 and Davenport Road. This will be an in-person meeting with 50 people or less. Attendees must remain socially distanced and must wear a mask. The continued purpose of these meetings is to inform Cumberland County residents and the surrounding counties about the serious impact the proposed mega landfill will have on the area.

Browns Chapel, located north of Dillwyn on Gravel Hill Road, will host a benefit gospel sing and barbecue dinner Saturday, May 22, beginning at 4 p.m. to raise funds for a mission trip to Matoaka, West Virginia. Gospel music at its best will feature Barry Snoddy, Chris Lewis and Tommy and Debbie England, all of Buckingham. Dinner will include barbecue, coleslaw, dessert and a beverage all for a donation. All are welcome to attend this great event.
