What do you like most about living in Cecilton?: To me it’s home! It’s been my life. I like the smallness of the town. At one time I knew every single person who lived in it. We were a town family that celebrated together and mourned together.

Do you have any fond memories of your neighbors?: All my classmates were my best friends. The wedding of my best friend. The only wedding I was ever in. It was for Henrietta McCubbin Davis. Henrietta’s father owned the store where the Royal Farms is currently located.

What advice do you have for someone who just moved here?: Be happy that you moved to a small progressive town. Become an active citizen.
