|The Haupts will begin a two week
vacation tomorrow. Part will be spent just staying home. Services,
the bulletin, and other activities will be in charge of the session.
We look forward to rest and relaxation, and are most grateful for the
time. We consider vacation a release only from the routine duties; we
are always available for any emergency need if we can be reached.
|Gift to the Church
|Last week the William and Wilbur
Spaniol families presented to the church a complete public address
system, thus providing the church with equipment which has been
considered desirable for some time. The congregation acknowledges
this splendid gift with sincere appreciation and thanks. Items
include an amplifier with record player, two microphones, and two
speakers. It is expected to serve as an acoustic aid, and to enable
programs to be carried to any part of the church. It is being used
experimentally today, and we hope with some practice to achieve full
utility of the equipment.
