Hymn sing, ice cream social at Salem


For years, it has been a tradition at Salem Presbyterian Church, 312 Combs Ferry Road, to meet on an August evening to enjoy homemade ice cream and desserts. After dessert, everyone goes to the sanctuary for the annual hymn singing. The songs are chosen by those who attend. This year Pastor Don Stanley’s wife Doris, an accomplished musician, will play the piano for a long evening of singing. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 20. Those attending are asked to bring a can of food for God’s Pantry to share with our neighbors.
