EARLENE The School Marm SAYS

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.

Our Conference meets this week in Philadelphia and we expect to
attend. Elmer has more or less been told that he may serve them
here again. For this we are all three most grateful. We all enjoy
their wonderful fellowship and spirit.

I just finished our last service for the year here in Enola with
our Cherub Choir. I had between 15 and 20 First and Fourth Graders
every Tuesday night for an hour rehearsal. We sang once a month in
the Church Service. They wore long red skirts with white tops
fastened at the neck with red ribbons. They were cute and did do a
fine job (not all because of my training). The fine cooperation of
the parents in helping them learn the words and seeing that they
were transported to the church from their homes at proper times was
most necessary.

Marsha and I (as well as Elmer) are looking forward to seeing
you this Summer.
