17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, September 8, 1912: Went to Sunday School this afternoon. Had Harvest Home services at church.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Harvest Home was one of my favorite Sundays when I was a child. Do any churches still have Harvest Home services?
I loved to gather fruits and vegetables for the beautiful display in the front of the church—and then during the service I enjoyed looking at the interesting squash, pumpkins and other vegetables. And, it always made me feel good that the food would be given to needy families after the service.
A hundred years ago did Grandma also gather produce for Harvest Home, and help create the display?
