Salem Sesquicentennial Summary

The 150th Committee will be publishing a book of Salem's history: who formed the church, and why,    and how the congregation has grown to be the welcoming place that it is today.

The book will be sold, and the price,  to be determined by the number of pages will be announced at a later date.

People can contribute short memory stories about pastors since "Upon This Rock," Salem's history book of 1970, and descendants can contribute short stories about the first founding members.  Send by email to Phyllis Johnson at pajspages@yahoo.com or by mail to her at PO Box 525, Sycamore, IL 60178.


for the Sesquicentennial  Summary Book . . .

We will resume taking pictures for the 150th Directory on Monday, September 16.
They will be taken from 5:00—9:00 p.m. September 16-20.
 Look for the sign-up sheets in the narthex.  This is the last week for picture taking.

The Summary book will also include   an album of present members' photos, to be taken by Salem member Jim Riebe in May and June.  Watch for a sign-up list for photograph appointments at the Welcome Desk in the Narthex.  There is no cost.  If you wish,  you may purchase the picture for a nominal fee but no purchase is required.
