Presbyterian Homes plan annual festival

Douglas Grant

Zuni Presbyterian Homes will hold the 32nd Annual Visitor’s Day, Day in the Country, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, April 22.

This year’s event will take on a slightly different flavor as it will also be the day that Presbyterian Homes officials honor the 33 years of service given by one of their own, Robert Bishop, who is retiring June 30.

Bishop has been the director at Zuni for several years. He has also worked to open homes in Fredericksburg, Waynesboro and South Hill.

Along with the special dedication to Bishop, the day’s activities will include music by Patsy Butler, from Sandston; the Shiloh Grass Band, of Boykins; the Praise Singers from Kirkwood Presbyterian Church and songs by Scotty Blue.

Other entertainment will include the Suffolk Peanut City Cloggers, the Southside Baptist Puppet Team,, clowns, face painting, Tae Kwon Do demonstrations, a moon bounce and much, much more.

There will be plenty to eat, including fresh baked goods, hamburgers, hot dogs, pork chops, soft drinks, coffee and tea. And, of course, there will be peanuts from the Zuni Gourmet Peanut Shop.

Go one mile to the stop sign and then straight onto Thomas Woods Trail (State Road 614. Zuni Presbyterian Homes is on the right, three-quarters of a mile after the bridge.
