Local funeral chapel to host event honoring pastors/clergymen making community impact


SALISBURY, Md.-  Howell & Jolley Memorial Chapel is hosting its first-ever Honoring Pastors and Clergies event.

We’re told the goal is to highlight the work of those leaders and all they do in the community.

Several pastors and clergymen are slated to be honored including Reverend Doretta Smith of New Hope Baptist Church in Salisbury.

The chapel tells 47ABC they want to celebrate all work that goes unnoticed and grow their footprint in the community. “Our whole theme is a family tradition of family friends. We want to really stand by that and really mean that. We want to show the community that we are a friend,” Howell & Jolley President Edwin Jolley-Lashley said.

“We are very compassionate and we just want to show our compassion and appreciation to our community.”

The event is scheduled for Friday, September 30th at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.

Organizers ask that if you’ve already received an invitation to RSVP at your earliest convenience.
