JUNE MEETING 1999
On June 6, 1999, Spring Grove Friends Church celebrated their 140th anniversary. Despite rain, around 100 people attended this memorable event.
So, What is June Meeting???
June Meeting is
the way that our church celebrates its anniversary. Every year on
the first Sunday in June Spring Grove has a special day of
activities and reminiscing. It is a time that you can learn about
the Quaker's role in history and what Spring Grove has done.
Hollis Hunt, Eugene White, and Jeremy White, June Meeting 1999.
In 1999, we had a lot of events planned all day long.
Although some were cancelled or moved inside because of the rain,
many things were taught all day long. Many people dressed up in
period clothing for this special event.
Morning Worship was a
special time of celebration. It included some old-time hymns and
a special message presented by former pastor Ferne Cook. People
sat in traditional Quaker seating arrangements (men on right,
women on left.)

Pastor Forrest Brandt gave some closing remarks and lined everybody up for a group picture taken inside the church. After everything was over, about thirty people stayed for fellowship. They helped finish off the dessert tables and had some leftover stew.
Spring Grove's 140th anniversary was a tremendous success despite rain and a crowded building.
