The congregation decided to rebuild in another location, and dedicated the current church building on March 18, 1860. So today, we had a special day planned by a committee I was on. We set up an exhibit of old photos and other items from the church's archives.
It started with a program on stained glass in general during the adult Sunday School class. It was an interesting survey of the styles and techniques of many centuries of glass art, presented by a stained glass historian and consultant from Philadelphia.
LeeAnn used red tablecloths with gold napkins and gold star balloons. Lunch consisted of lasagna and a green salad, followed by a cool cake that sported the church's logo on it. I may have the only existing picture of it, which I will share with you in a minute.
Perhaps the only existing photo of the official Anniversary Cake.
Colorful flowers for a festive day.
This part of the church was added in 1882.
At one time, this steeple was the highest
structure between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
