Georgeville will soon see the return of an old classic, the chicken pot pie supper, in celebration of the lives of two pillars of the community, Georgina and Richard Hornby.
Their daughter, Sharon Camber, had the idea to hold it as a memorial for the two, as not only were they deeply involved in the community, but they were also the ones who started the tradition years ago as a fundraiser for the Georgeville Community Association.
“When we moved here in the 70s my mom bought the village store, and right after they started getting involved in community events. There’s the chicken pie supper, the street dance, and my mom was famous for doing the supper; she liked doing it and recruited all the local kids at the end of the year to help out. Everybody in the community looked forward to it because it was a community event where you got to see everyone and ask how their summer went,” recounted Camber.
The Hornbys were well known not only for running the village store, but also for their endless contributions to the community, which they kept up for decades after they arrived.
