Recently a number of historical items have gone missing from the church, including three or four photo albums.Â The identity of other items is unknown, but the place where they used to be is now empty.Â While being pleased that people are showing interest in our history, I am concerned that these items be located so that the centennial book committee will have access to them for reference purposes. If you have any of this, can you let me know, or return it to the church office. Thanks, Bill Bryson
