16-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, June 18, 1911: Went to Sunday school this morning. Was over Stout’s this afternoon, and went up to the Lutheran church to witness their children’s day services this evening. Ma was my chaperone.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
There is no longer a Lutheran church in McEwensville. Messiah Lutheran merged with the other church in the parish—St. John’s Lutheran (Turbotivlle) a few years ago. The combined congregation is now called Holy Spirit Lutheran. Holy Spirit built a building in out in the county half way between McEwensville and Turbotville.
