Additional Red River Meeting House News from Darlynn Moore:
On Sunday, September 9, approx. 50 people came together on a beautiful cool day to share food for the traditional dinner on the grounds for the Red River Meeting House and Cemetery Association’s annual meeting. The dinner bell was rung shortly after 1 p.m. signaling the meal was ready. After the meal those gathered were called into the meeting house by Stephen Gibbs and three others who blew their shofars to alert people of the service about to begin. Stephen Gibbs played his guitar and led the congregation with hymns and praises. Afterwards, Becca McElfresh and Mara Cobb spoke to the group about their project they did along with the help of three other members, Mariah Miller, Morgan Scott, and Titus Smith, of the Logan County History Hoots, a chapter of the Kentucky Junior Historical Society, who wasn’t able to attend Sunday. They told about their group creating the exhibit featuring Red River Meeting House in which the group competed in Owensboro and advanced to the state competition held in Frankfort this past spring. Sharing of information about RRMH and spreading the gospel was the focus of the project. They told of RRMH was a perfect fit for this year’s KJHS competition theme: Reaction, Revolution, and Reform. The exhibit included facts and photos of RRMH, as well as a replica. Since then, the exhibit has been on display in local libraries. The name of their presentation was entitled “Awakening the World” and consisted of a board made out of small tree size limbs with facts and photos of Red River Meeting House and the Revival of 1800 attached to it. Also the highlight of the day was seeing the replica of the meeting house which the group had made this past spring. After the group presented their program and answered questions, Richard Moore, President of the Association, conducted a short business meeting. He reported the many activities that had taken place since the last annual meeting and the different opportunities that members had to speak to groups about Red River. He also announced the different events coming up as well. Please contact Richard if you need any information about Red River.
Have a great week and be good to one another.
Notes from Schochoh: I appreciate the calls and emails I received last week regarding my column with comments about President Obama. Some callers were supportive but the majority expressed their feelings by calling me names. While I am a supporter of the President, the column in its original form was not a commentary on the upcoming election. The column was meant to be a commentary on racism that is still prevalent in our country. Unfortunately those comments were deleted by the paper’s editorial staff as is their prerogative. I stand by my comments about the President but I will no longer write any political commentary in my column because a community news column is not the proper venue for this subject matter.
