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.
