Ground Broken For
In the year of 17D1, a small group
of people knelt In prayer before a
meeting house, newly finished, to
offer their thanks to a God, who had
given them, always, the In-st. Then
they entered to worship. And so
began the Quakers New Garden
Last Sunday, one hundred and
ninety-eight, years later, the grand
children and great-grandchildren of
those same early settlers, gathered
to celebrate the one-hundred and
ninty-eightii birthday of the Friends
The celebration began with the
usual 11 :00 church service, after
which there was a picnic. There
was a special service after the din
ner, in which was read the story of
tiie first New Harden Meeting and
the people behind it.
After the afternoon service there
was a ground-breaking service on
the site of the proposed parsonage.
The site is behind Memorial Hall
on the location of the Red School

library is receiving a new addition.
On the campus is noted a tre
mendous improvement as to the
lawn. The set of lamps donated by
the class of '4! l, and the new walk
to the corner provide convenience,
comfort, and lieaut.v to the campus
as a whole. The new curb erected
