Church parsonage burns On Saturday night on April 9th, 2011, the Church parsonage caught fire and burned. In a bizarre coincidence, I had just found the following news article a few hours earlier that day while researching the Church history in the newspaper archives at the University of Georgia in preparation for the upcoming web site relaunch at the end of the month. This article, from the October 29, 1964 issue of the old Pembroke Journal newspaper, described the dedication ceremony that was held for the parsonage at its opening.
