I'm too old to get any kicks out of opening Christmas presents anymore. But old stuff, that's another story. A while back I purchased a box of old Ellendale Eagles and I was sorting through them and I found a sealed envelope. It read to (I won't say the name) from mom. It was dated February 6, 1944. Ooh! I opened it up and it was a 25th anniversary booklet for the Trinity English Lutheran Church dated 1944. So here's a few pictures to take a gander at and maybe someone will see an ancestor? By the way, I have no connection to this church, so if someone wants it, just let me know, otherwise it'll go back in my playhouse and you'll have to pay for it at my estate sale.

    Deacons

    I googled a few of the names of the deacons. A couple of these men were in the bakery business and I suspect Mr. Gandrud may have had something to do with Gandy?

    High League

    These young folks comprised the High League in 1944. Recognize anyone?

    I'm guessing these were the High Schoolers who were members?
