Rally Day at Roaring Spring churches on April 17 showed a total of 1,800 in attendance at the different Sunday Schools of the town. The Methodist ranked the highest, having 476, while the Church of the Brethren came next, with 418 present. A banner for the distinction of having the highest percentage of attendance at Sunday School of any town in the state was presented at a public meeting, a gift from a Philadelphia newspaper.
