It was about 95 degrees in Long Street Church (LSC) for this year's reunion. But that didn't keep the church from being full. Over 130 people were present in the heat, relieved only by commemorative stick fans provided by Fort Bragg's Public Affairs Office.

Chaplain Kim’s wife, Mary, played the organ for the attendees who came from places as far as Tennessee, Virginia and Maryland for the reunion.
Many of the attendees were descendants of the original congregation. They cited their names and connections to the early Argyle community members, ancestors now buried in the Long Street Church Cemetery.
The guest sermon was given by Rev. Michael Lewis McGhee from Marianne, Florida, who currently lives in Red Springs, N.C. The LSC Congregation Rev. Clark Remsburg, of Concord, N.C., facilitated the service.
Flowers in honor of Long Street Church members who passed this year dressed up the pulpit, along with flameless candles.
The Cultural Resource Management Program brought the 1826 Gaelic Bible for display along with an 1924 photograph of the LSC Congregation and a few other historical items to share.
