Plenty of Pleasant Valley history on display at St. Matthew’s homecoming Sunday
Eagle Archive By Kevin E. Dayhoff, Sunday, September 20, 2015
There was plenty of good food, fellowship, stories and history on display at the St. Matthew's United Church of Christ’s homecoming event, in Pleasant Valley last Sunday, Sept. 13.
Friends and family from all over Carroll County, and current and past members of St. Matthews, gathered for church services Sunday morning. Then folks streamed into the first floor to a large display of Pleasant Valley artifacts, newspaper clippings, deeds, marriage certificates, papers, and pictures.
Pastor Debra Peters Wilcox noted in her sermon, “…It’s been a good morning … as we … have been getting ready for this, our homecoming day… And the weeks flew by, and people started pulling scrapbooks out of closets, and quilts out of bedrooms. We found old photos, old banners, old Sunday school awards… and we began to realize that, when it comes to remembering our days at St. Matthew’s, we have a lot to say!”
The day before, church elder and Pleasant Valley historian, Angela Gist Bowersox was found awash in a sea of boxes, books and papers in the downstairs social hall of the church.
