Dennis E. Jones, Principal of Richlands High School, recited the family connections of the "Hominy Swamp Community" and the historical importance of preserving family history. Principal Jones' commitment to the entire community and to its history is legendary. His passion for genealogy and local history is always shown in his expert recollections of precise facts - and he is a master storyteller.

Afterwards, re-enactors donated new grave markers and performed a military ceremony at the graves of five local Confederate veterans whose gravestones had been damaged in past hurricanes.
