Who doesn't enjoy breakfast food for dinner? The Red Hill Historical Preservation Society, also known as the Red Hill Community Club, is hoping everyone does. The organization is planning a pancake supper for 4 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11.

Volunteers will be serving up hot pancakes, bacon and sausage plus fruit juice, coffee or tea or milk will also be available. Plates are $10 for adults and $5 for children 8 years old and younger.

The nonprofit organization is aiming to raise funds that will be used to complete the renovations of the first- and second-grade classroom and the third- and fourth-grade classroom in the historic building's north wing which is being restored. This is the second fundraiser in less than a month while the group continues pushing to finish the renovation project.

The renovation process has been an ongoing process for the group.

"The old third- and fourth-grade classroom is just about completed," RHHPA's Ray Hall said. "Next will be the first- and second-grade classroom."

The Red Hill schoolhouse has a deep history in the area. Over the years hundreds of students graduated from the K-12 school.

Alabama Power employees created a village that became the Red Hill community during the construction of Martin Dam the first Red Hill School opened in 1913. It was a wooden structure that served the community until 1927 when a new brick schoolhouse was constructed. It served the community until 1966. Today efforts are ongoing to restore the building.
