PRESS RELEASE 
 
The annual Possum Trot Homecoming Service will be at 11 a.m. Sunday (Sept. 16) at Possum Trot Chapel.
 
The public is welcome to join alumni of the Possum Trot School and current Berry College students for the annual worship service in the historic Possum Trot building. During the service, student speaker Kevin Grier, a senior from Lawrenceville, Ga., will share details about his spiritual growth. A free potluck lunch will follow the service.
 
The Possum Trot Church is the "cradle of Berry College." Built originally around 1850, the old church was appropriated by Martha Berry for the Possum Trot Sunday School in 1900. The needs of the people at Possum Trot inspired her to build other schools to help children in the area learn how to use their talents and resources better. Miss Berry's title, "The Sunday Lady of Possum Trot," originated from her Sunday school teachings at the church.
 
This event is free and open to the public.
