EAST ROCKINGHAM — The halls of Place of Grace were decked with Christmas cheer this past weekend as brightly lit trees, along with decorated wreaths, greeted all those who entered.

The Forest of Hope event, which raised around $17,000, was centered around Christmas and created to support— as well as expand — the rescue mission’s services which are provided to the homeless.

ROCKINGHAM — There were a lot of thankful smiles and hugs on Saturday, Nov. 3 as members of the local motorcycle group Ol Skool Tribe worked together to feed a crowd of homeless men, women and children in the parking lot beside La Cabana Restaurant on U.S. 74 Business. 

Marty Bundy, a member of Ol Skool Tribe, came up with the idea last year to provide assistance to this group of people in Richmond County — specifically those in the Rockingham area — who live on the streets.
