The Henderson County Black History Committee held its 6th Annual Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Malakoff High School.
This was the last big event for the Black History Committee before issuing college funds to the 2018 Scholarship recipients who start college in September.
“We are thankful to all who participated in our car show and for the businesses, casinos, hotels, etc. who donated prizes for us to raffle off in support of our scholarship fund,” said Rev. Joey Baggett, Black History Committee president.
To close out the year, the Black History Committee will host an amateur spades tournament on Oct. 6 at the Malakoff Community Center. For more information, contact Gloria Hunter at 903-675-4550, Derryl Jackson at 903-275-1330, or Bea Anderson at 903-288-6857.
