President Scott Hebb welcomed everyone to the 42nd annual Fairview Homecoming picnic at the church pavilion on Location Road on June 24, 2018. A brief business meeting for the maintenance of the two Fairview cemeteries was held following the picnic.

They will be missed, but remembered dearly.

Prizes were given to the Oldest Man attending; 93 year old, David Strahin of Montrose: The Oldest Woman was 91 year old, Marijane Martin of Location Road. Mr. Strahin and Marijane have blessed our group by receiving this honor several years.
