We thank the Pearl Fark family for their attendance in last week’s Worship and for their presentation of a cross for the Fellowship Hall Cross Wall. (see photo) The cross was handmade from a piece of barn wood from the Howard and Pearl Fark farm. The plaque that it is on was also handmade from a piece of a 1850’s Zion church pew that was found in that barn.
The gift was in recognition of Howard Fark (deceased) for Father’s Day and his love of the farm and his church.

    I knew Randy and Pearl Fark back when I was a resident of Hoyleton Children’s Home from June 1979 to June 1981. I have a lot of great memories from that time, long ago. I enjoyed helping Pearl in the kitchen and setting the tables in the dining room.
