Gospel Sing

On Friday evening (6/15)  the Glenville Presbyterian Church was the site of an old-time gospel sing.  We sponsored a pot luck supper before the sing.  I had forgotten that the laws of photography state that one should never take a picture of the food after the group has started eating!

We had about 25 folks in attendance. Many folks were congregational members, but we had visitors from Elkins and even Florida.  From left to right is Tracy Schwartz, Grafton Wine, Mona James, Fran Schmetzer, and Pastor Charlie Ringe.

Ron and Lynn Kemper below on the far left is talking with Kathy Gilbert.  Ron Kemper's father was a marvelous Gilmer County bird carver.  Lynn has taken up his craft.  These folk live in Florida, but during the summer live on the family farm in Gilmer County.  If you are at the WV State Folk Festival this week, please stop by the Historic Bank Building where Lynn will be displaying her art.  They are marvelous folks.

Ginny Hawker and Tracy Schwarz led the singing.

We finished our hour of old time singing with a great song called "Family Reunion".

Judy is with our neighbor Ruth and her daughter Jennifer. 

It is such a good feeling to be part of community singing and hymns are the best!
