Reunion At Coal Fire, AL

In thinking about the reunion at Coal Fire Baptist Church in July sparks a memory of gatherings past at that church, say 1940s and 50s. I think it was probably the all day singings held at the church. But I remember the tea being made in  wash tubs with big blocks of ice in the tub. Any of you remember that. Also, banana sandwiches. And fried chicken!!!! That was like heaven to me as a boy, a little fat boy I might add, and yes, I did join in the singing. I loved it. I sang tenor for several years with the Harmony Brothers Gospel Quartet out of Carlsbad, NM  and still love singing, though now its more like a croak… I doubt our ice tea will be in  wash tubs this reunion, but if it were, I’d be delighted to drink it….Looking forward to the trip…
