Old Folks Day at Mt. Tabor Church

The 57th annual Old Folk’s Day began with welcome by pastor Ric Engelhardt, followed by prayer and a congregational song.

The program consisted of several songs, some poems, readings, testimonies and remembrances. Several spoke about beginning their days of Sunday school and church when they were children at Mt. Tabor. We had a few that had never attendedĀ and we hope that they make it a regular stop from now on.

The church awarded gifts to the oldest man, Blair Kargas, who chose to give his gift to his great friend, Martin Hathcock, Jerry Hunnell was runner-up. The oldest lady was Lenora Burton, with runner-up, Chestene Lietch. We had an abundance of handmade gifts, which the people love, and everyone went home with something and some with several.

It was a fun afternoon, however, we always miss those who leave us during the year who were so faithful to come and we missed them dearly.

We appreciated Mt. Tabor Church for the gifts, the ladies for all their handiwork and each one who had a part or helped in any way. We will look for you next year, second Sunday in September. Brother Ric closed in prayer.
