Provo RD host annual pie supper and auction
The Provo Rural Development Club held its annual pie supper and auction on Saturday night.
The Provo RD event entertained everyone with supper and dessert. There was also a brief history lesson provided. According to Melba and Jimmy Holman, Melba's great grandfather was the Postmaster of Provo in 1902. The Post Office then was right across the street from the current Provo Rural Development building. In the community building, Dwight Pendley went to Grammar School from 1st to 7th grade back in the 1940s. They would fetch water from the spring, 200 feet north of the school.
Tony Wilson, President of the Rural Development Club, said his grandfather, Cecil Wilson, was also a postmaster and the first president of the club in 1957.
There are only five Rural Development Clubs left in the nation and they all are in Butler County.
Big Bend, Gilstrap, Reedyville and Little Muddy are the other clubs.
There was also a cakewalk, auction and plenty of games for those in attendance.
