Fling Out the Banner!

Emmaus Homes - Tuesday, December 11, 2018

From a December 1962 Emmaus Messenger

Terry and Cary P., two of our younger residents, were proud banner-bearers at the opening service of celebration of the Missouri Conference of the United Church of Christ recently. The service, held May 10, at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, included a parade of banners from churches and institutions from across Missouri. The dazzling variety of colors in the banners made a very favorable impression on those present.

Our banner was planned, designed, and made by two of our Women's Building attendants, Mrs. Gladys Pieper and Mrs. Edna Wessel. The background was gold felt, and the central design was done in the colors of the church year, red, purple and green. Our thanks to the ladies, and to Terry and Cary, for their parts in making and displaying our banner.
