Editor, The Daily Home:
The Talladega Pilgrimage Council once again would like to thank the many people who helped to make the 2014 “April in Talladega” weekend so successful. Every aspect of the event - from the tour of historic and beautiful homes to the visitation by ghostly former citizens at Oak Hill Cemetery to the delightful reception at Heritage Hall with the Perry Austin Exhibit to the opening of the historic Masonic Lodge to the display of folk artists and the talking tent at Heritage Hall and the Talladega Public Library, the fabulous cooking show by Chef Dave Garfrerick, to the vendors and volunteers at the A.J. Powers Memorial Lodge in Winterboro, and the delicious luncheon and fashion show by the Episcopal Day School at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church - was a treat in and of itself!
The owners, members, volunteers, and docents of these various entities are to be commended for the pride in which they took and the efforts to which they went, to make certain that each of these places were displayed in their best light to the many attendees.
