      My memories are of preparing and serving meals there [Yanceyville Rotary Club] to the men. Think it was the children's choir that did this. My dad was a member so I was there on other occasions as well. Oh, and my music recital was there too. No bathroom and the outdoor potty. Yuck. While the moms were preparing the meal us kids would go to the lake and skip rocks and watch the ducks. Yes I well remember that place. Hope the new owners will do something good with it. A shame to just let it deteriorate. My mom wanted to see it again and we visited it the spring before she died.
