Celebrate Dedication Anniversary
About fifty were present at the M. E. church Tuesday evening, July 15, to help celebrate the thirteenth anniversary of the dedication of the church building.
Several who were present at the dedicatory services thirteen years ago made talks in which they told of the events as they happened on that day. Among those who spoke were Rev. W. H. Welton, who was pastor of the congregation at that time and had a big part in the building of the church, Mrs. H. W. Montgomery, Mrs. R. G. Medsker, H. W. Montgomery, C. E. Owens and G. L. Owens.
During the evening delegates from this congregation to the annual conference which will meet in Maryville in September were named. J. C. Spahr was named as delegate and H. W. Montgomery as alternate.
Seasonable refreshments were served.
