Old Landmark Committee

The Old Landmark Committee has come together for more than a decade to give back to the community.

The cafeteria at First United Methodist Church was packed with people from the crossroads area. They came together to enjoy the Multi-Cultural Taste Of Soul. Joyce Young Ellis says this event has helped her mom during hard times.

“I moved back to the community to Victoria a couple of years back because my mom being a senior she was very elderly and I came back to help her, and she would go to functions like this when she couldn’t get her bills met all the time,” said Joyce Young Ellis volunteer.

The Taste Of Soul was a free food give away that was open to the community. Our very own David Gibson gave a motivational speech and I gave the audience a little glimpse into my life. Ms. Ellis brought her family to join the celebration because it was significant for them to know the importance of giving back. Her grandson attended last year and was very excited to come back.

“My grandson who is six he attended last year, and he told us and brought tears to our eyes that he loves giving back to the community, so we thought this was a great way for him to learn,” Ellis.

MS. Sandra Avery is the President of the Old Landmark Committee. Each year she has taken time to give free food to those in need.

“She gives to the community so this is something we need to try to keep going because it’s a lot of people out there that needs these necessities, and they don’t have these necessities,” said John Hill

The Old Landmark Committee is accepting volunteers to help coordinate this event again next year.
