Hackers Creek Pioneer Descendants

New Chairs!!

I sent an email to the members and it I stated about getting our new chairs for the Event Room.  The chairs are very nice and well appreciated.  It will make my life and the volunteers life much easier.   Appreciate all who donated to the chair fund, making it possible for us to purchase and replace the old heavy Grey chairs.  We still have our brown metal chairs if we need extra seating.  We purchased a total of 36 chairs.  Those who plan to attend the Gathering, will appreciate the comfort of theses chairs.

Memorial Bricks Order Date Extended
     HCPD is still taking orders for pavers to be placed in a family member's name. . . or, for that matter, in your own name, in our paver garden in front of the former Horner School, now called the Central West Virginia Genealogy & History Library & Museum, at the Abbotts Run Road intersection with old US 33 (aka Horner-Georgetown crossroads) in Horner.
     Over the years, the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants have commemorated our members, family members and various pioneers of Central West Virginia with wall plaques and the adoption of various parts of our facility. Funds generated by these projects have been used to improve and enhance our facility.
     Now we are continuing our work with another project with the same dual purpose: to memorialize our members, family members and others interested in our area and to generate funds to enhance our facility.
     We are giving our members and others the opportunity to purchase an engraved Memorial Paver in your own name or that of a loved one which will become a permanent part of our facility as a memorial garden (pictured on your right) in front of the libralry on our grounds.
     Each paver will be engraved by Kiddy Monument, Weston, WV, with information and/or wording provided by you. The engraved words may be one to three lines of 16 characters or spaces each. Each brick will be $50. 
     There is no cutoff date for orders. 
       Please print this this form to place your order.  You will need to mail the form together with your check or credit card information to HCPD, 45 Abbotts Run Rd., Horner, WV 26372.  Verbal orders WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
      If you have any questions, please contact the office at hcpd@hackerscreek.com.  Phone number is 304-269-7091
