Join us inside the air-conditioned church at 2 p.m. for the program, featuring “Bonse Aba,” a men’s quartet from Paynesville Lutheran Church. We are pleased to acknowledge the 100th birthday of three of our former Salem church members: Dr. Lowell Gess, Vernice Heitke Evans, and Vivian Heitke. Each of them lived in the Salem community at one time, and attended the Salem Church before moving away.
Birthday cake and ice cream will be served after the program in honor of our centenarians.
An offering will be collected for Salem’s upkeep and restoration. COVID-19 protocols that are in effect at that time will be observed or you are welcome to wear a mask.
