Celebrating family: Lem and Eddie Long’s 66th anniversary


Lem Long married Eddie Jeanetta Vaughn on Christmas Eve 1946.

Lem began his apprenticeship at McEwen Funeral home upon coming home from World War II, and he and Eddie, a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University, would eventually own and operate what is now Long and Son Mortuary Service in Charlotte.

Long and Son, which has been serving local families for more than 65 years, is one of the most successful older black businesses in Charlotte.

Eddie and Lem’s 66th anniversary was celebrated by more than 100 family members who gathered at the Mint Hill Lodge on December 22.

MHFVD looks toward new year at January meeting

At the Mint Hill Volunteer Fire Department’s first meeting of the new year, Chief John Phillips and the members of the department reflected on the past year and readied for the new one.

The meeting began by remembering those who had passed, and those that are sick or injured, including members of the Mint Hill community, and people throughout the nation.

Three applications were accepted, and those potential members began their 90-day probation period, while that period ended for six others, who were accepted into full membership with the department.
