“Homecoming at Campfield” ©

Stevie Weevy looked forward to Homecoming at Campfield. It was a time of food, fun and fellowship. This gathering happened once a year. It was an opportunity for families and friends to come together and celebrate the creation of “Campfield.” It was built in the 1860’s and was part of Stevie Weevy’s family history. His Grandparents attended that same church long ago.

As his father drove to church in their new 1956 Chevrolet Belair, Stevie Weevy could smell the food that his Mama had cooked the night before Homecoming. She had placed the food in the back seat of the car before they headed to church.

Although the food was a major part of Stevie’s excitement, he also enjoyed the events taking place within the walls of the church. He listened as Reverend Drummer peached and watched as Mrs. Tambourine shouted down the aisle of the church. He would share those events with his friends when he returned to his neighborhood!
