Early settlers of Pickett and Overton Counties were members of the Boles family, and many children have come down from the pioneers. A church and song service will be held during the morning, and dinner will be held on the ground. Exercises will be held at the cemetery during the afternoon and a general get-together will be held. All members of the family are urged to attend and to bring a friend -and a basket dinner.
