To the editor:

The Davie County Branch of the NAACP will sponsor a Souls to the Polls Prayer Vigil on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. at the Main Street Park in Downtown Mocksville.

The vigil will include prayers for the nation, it’s leaders and people. Churches across the county and candidates are invited.  Masks are required.

The Annual Freedom Fund Banquet, that is usually held in October, has been canceled until 2021.  There will be a virtual program on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. It will include the following musicians:  Jada Smith, Chad Dalton and Alfred Mason.  The featured speaker will be Dr. Marion Franks, N.C. A&T University professor and pastor of Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Fork.                                     

The banquet has been the major fundraiser for assessments to the state and national offices and to defray the expenses of the local branch plus charity contributions.  As in the past, donations from sponsors and patrons are greatly appreciated.
