I suppose, the part of our church activities which
.will interest you modt'is the service held in
■your honor, and also, in honor of the mothers
having’ a son in Service, Each- iiioth6r was given
a red carnation to v/ear for her son iii the service. The Glee Glub from Piedmont-
brought to cmr,minds, thru song^ thoughts of yesterday and today. Prayers were
offered by fathei?s'y;ho have sons in tVi'c Service."For Our Countrj''""For Our
Boys"For Peac'd^. Tlie Junior choir ^ve "Tlrie Response to Prayer." 'jfhe
Service was closed by the mothers as they pinned a star-represent'ing their son-
