The Old Folks Home at Martinsburg was the scene of the annual social gathering on Saturday, with church workers and friends from far and near attending. A basket picnic was enjoyed at noon.
At the business meeting a number of addresses were made and reports given. It was brought out that the Home had been established 26 years before at Shirleysburg, Huntingdon County, by the churches of the Middle District of the Church of the Brethren, but that three years later was transferred to Martinsburg, with Rev. W.S. Long of Altoona as the first steward here.
