NEW MEETING LOCATION

Please Note: Our Monthly Meeting Location has Changed Again!

 

After many months of construction, the Ray Hall Community Center's Fellowship Hall is once again our home for monthly meetings. This is the same room where we have met for many years. However, there is now a new entrance and approach to arrive at the Fellowship Hall:

  • Drive past the old entrance on Cole Drive.
  • You will pass the new addition to the building and a second traffic circle.
  • Park anywhere past the circle and walk toward the new entrance.
  • There are two sets of doors under a tall canopy. Enter the doors on the right side.
  • Inside the new lobby, the reception desk is on the left. Ask the staff member at the desk for directions to the Fellowship Hall or look for an Olde Meck member who will be on hand to direct you.
Refer to the pictures below to help orient you. This will now be our permanent location. Thanks for your patience as we accommodated the Aldersgate construction.

Do you want to preserve your family stories for future generations but don't know where to start? Come to the Olde Meck Family Research Center on Thursday afternoons (12:00 noon to 2:00 pm) and join with others who have the same goal. We'll share our stories, provide constructive comments, and generally encourage each other to begin this worthwhile process that we've all been putting off.
 
This group is free for all Olde Meck members AND you can bring a friend. No RSVP is needed. Please come any Thursday you can.
 

What to bring:

  • Memoir writers: pictures of yourself at various ages
  • Ancestor writers: clippings or timeline or pictures of your taret ancestor
  • Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch for yourself!

Family Showcase - George Houston Moore

Shown here are Houston Moore and Mariah McCrary Moore, the Great Grandparents of Olde Meck member, Lou Jean Moore Johnson. Houston and Mariah raised their family in the mountains of Transylvania County in the late 1800’s. Lou Jean has provided some fascinating pictures that show the George Houston Moore family of the 1890’s, and her Grandfather and Father in the mid-1900’s.
