Union Services at the Park
A meeting of representatives from the different churches was held in the lecture room of the Presbyterian church last Monday evening and the question of holding union meetings in the park similar to those held last year was considered. After a thorough discussion it was decided that union meetings be held during July and August. The services will be held on the Sabbath at 4 o’clock. Committees on program, music, grounds, finance and advertising were appointed, also an executive committee consisting of the pastors of the churches, and the following L.C. Hodgson, J.D. Kibbee, R.H. Holcombe and Rev. E.H. Bronson to have a general supervision of the work. It was the earnest wish of the meeting that these services should prove a source of much blessing to the citizens of Luverne and surrounding country. The first service will be held Sunday July 7th of which special announcement will be made later.
