Work day was held last Saturday and another “bee” is scheduled today. The site of the home is the Oscar Ryder property next to the church. A section of the old home remains standing and will be part of the completed home when it is finished.
Mr. Almy comes here from Gettysburg where he has completed two years at the Lutheran seminary. St. Matthew’s congregation and the congregation of the Atonement Lutheran Church in Oneonta are cooperating to bring him here for a year as part of the seminary program of intern training. He graduated from Hartwick College in 1961.
Oliver Hall, Victor Dulkis, John Schrully and Frederick Jacobsen are the members of the local carpenters union who donated their services in the work bees at the new home site. Aage Richardson, president of the congregation, led these members of the congregation at last Saturday’s work session: Rudolph Anderson, Frank Nystrom, Eric Ernst, Sherwood Enck, Thorman Nordberg, Grant Moxley and Robert Nelson.
