Sunday School Celebration

The fourth annual celebration of the Sunday schools of Bear Creek township will be held in Phillip Stolz's grove, one mile south of Westchester, and one mile east of the Emanual [sic] church, on Saturday, September 2.

It is desired and expected that each Sunday school in the township be represented.

Everybody invited to come and bring your baskets well filled and enjoy a good time.

Isaiah Weisel, Township Pres.,
W.T. Metzner, Secretary


Found this notice in the local newspaper that mentioned my paternal 2nd-great granduncle, Wesley T. Metzner (1855-    ), son of John and Catherine (Young) Metzner.  Apparently, Wesley was serving as the secretary of Bear Creek township Sunday school association.

Wesley was married to Mary Emma Roser and had 4 children.
