115th Old Folks Day Singing at Morning Star

Morning Star United Methodist Church
Dutch Cove Road, Canton, Haywood County, North Carolina

Sunday, September 11, 2005

All selections from The Christian Harmony (‘Carolina book’, 1873 facsimile, 1994 reprint).
Singers usually led two songs at a time.

After morning Service, and Dinner, the bell rang, and the singers gathered.

Dan Huger explained that Miss Sue Smathers was in the care of Hospice, and that June Jolley, her daughter, was with her, and had asked him to run the singing for her.

Mr Bill Thompson greeted the singers, and opened with prayer for the day, and for Miss Sue and her family.

We had about 25 singers, and there were about 20 people in the church listening.

The weather was bright, and became a bit warm in the afternoon; we were invited to sit in the pews, but felt better sitting in the chancel choir seats as usual.
