Road trip

Met this really terrific woman named Carolyn, in Cannon County yesterday. She runs a food pantry at the Center Hill Baptist Church, just at the base of Short Mountain. Her pantry is about the size of a tiny bathroom closet but thankfully, there's plenty of space in the room that surrounds it for a couple of freezers and a nice-sized kitchen and dining area. They hadn't quite finished the kitchen part yet because, as Carolyn said, and she's absolutely right, "Money doesn't last as long as it used to."

The photo below is Center Hill Methodist Church, est. 1962, which is situated a stone's throw away from Carolyn's pantry. They aren't related but the architecture matches the feel of this rural community.
