Family and friends have gathered for more than 100 years, on the 2nd Sunday in June, to sing hymns in the chapel, lunch under the trees and walk the grounds of our Texas Historic Cemetery.  This year's Homecoming is scheduled for Sunday, June 11, 2017.

Due to summer heat and no facilities ( no power , a/c, water) we keep the reunion brief. We have a short business meeting in the chapel about 10:30 am, with Dinner on the Grounds (covered dish lunch) immediately after. The cemetery is also open for visiting.

 The homecomings have been held regularly since the early 1900's. We do welcome visitors - please have them contact me at FarrsChapel@gmail.com
