HI LADIES:

Do you have your handiwork about finished to take to the Reunion ? It certainly won't be long before we see each other again.

I Wish you all could see the nice pretty little white church at which Elmer now serves. To begin with, to get there we must travel out into a rural section. It is lovely. The road is winding and in many sections only the birds see us pass. The trees are blossoming and the grass is sparkling with dew in the early morning sun.

A small old cemetery adjoins the church building. I must confess, last night when I was supposed to be listening to my husband's sermon a bluebird distracted my interest. I had a view of him through the open window from where I was sitting, and he surely could sing!

Of course the trip to it, the building itself, its surroundings after you arrive are not the entire pleasant part of his job. The folks, themselves, are the finest kind you could find anywhere. We are really just beginning to feel we know some of them. Our Winter was so snowy it prevented us from traveling over there any oftener than really necessary. Now we are looking forward to a full year with them.

We had a very nice Mother and Daughter Banquet last week, about 60 attended. Next month, they say, they will hold a Father and Son Banquet, which tells you what fine cooperation and feeling exists between the members young and old alike.
