  • Autism awareness group holds benefit concert

    Buckingham County mothers Megan Terry and Tamra Toney have made it their mission to spread the word about autism.  As the leaders of Buckingham Speaks Out, a fundraising team for Walk Now for Autism Speaks, Terry and Toney hope to raise awareness of the disorder, while raising money for the non-profit group that is striving to find a cure.
  • Community group gives back with free movie night

    With the hustle and bustle of modern life, sometimes all we need is a relaxing evening with friends and family, a bucket of popcorn and a good movie.

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
