Etowah Spring Singing, 100th Year

Etowah Elementary School
Etowah, Henderson County, North Carolina

Saturday, May 5, 2007

The singing was sung from The Christian Harmony (‘Carolina book’, 1873 facsimile, 1994 reprint),
and The Christian Harmony ('Alabama book', Deason-Parris revision, 2002 printing) (songs tagged with 'AL').
Leaders typically led two songs at a time.

Mr Jimmie Cantrell led the opening prayer, and called on Scott Swanton to lead the singing.

In lieu of a business meeting, it was agreed that, as the school seems to be trying to dispense with the singing, Mr Cantrell would see about the singing next time being at the Lion's Club hall, just down the road past the school.

200b, Parting Hand

Closing prayer, Mary Baumeister.

There were about 25 singers. The weather was overcast and rainy. Thank you once again to Mr Cantrell.
