The 46th annual Ebony Old Fashion Day will be held on Saturday, July 14, beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until approximately 4 p.m. This annual event, which attracts many people from all across Virginia and northern North Carolina, is held each year in the small community of Ebony, Va., just a few miles from beautiful Lake Gaston. This fun-filled day for the entire family will take place at the Pavilion on the grounds of Lake Gaston Christian Life Centre in Ebony.

The ever-popular gigantic auction will highlight the day. This is an absolute auction and it begins at 9 a.m. with free registration starting at 8 a.m. Come listen to the old-time chant of a local auctioneer under the shade of the Brush Arbor Pavilion. Items up for auction will include antiques, jewelry, furniture, food items, including freshly made cakes and pies, prepared by some of the best cooks in Southside Virginia, household items (new and used), gift certificates, restaurant coupons, homemade jams, fresh vegetables, automotive and sporting equipment, collectibles, and many, many other items too numerous to mention. The auction promises to tickle your funny bone as well as provide quality merchandise for all ages and interests. Methods of payment accepted: cash, check, credit/debit cards. Free door prizes will also be awarded throughout the day! 

Tickets for the Kiddie Land section will be offered for purchase. A variety of supervised children’s games will appeal to kids of various ages. Delicious food will be on sale in the Country Kitchen, including ham biscuits and sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast. For lunch, BBQ chicken plates, pork chop plates, hot dogs, Italian sausage, homemade desserts, ice cold water and sodas will also be available.  

The church is located at 1411 Robinson Ferry Road in Ebony, VA (one mile east of the Ebony Fire Department). Come spend a relaxing Saturday with us (rain or shine), bring your lawn chairs, have some fun and help the Lake Gaston Christian Life Centre Mission’s and Building Funds.  For more information, call 434-636-5504, email lakegastonclc@gmail.com, or check out our web page at: www.lakegastonclc.com.
