Teaching Responsibility and Devotion

Hello Dear Reader,
The Hall family lived two and a half miles from “Center” in Lake Shore. “Center” was where the store, the four-room grade school, and the church were located. The church was an old red brick structure with a stage up front for programs and plays. The chairs were movable so the hall could be used for dances. The family spent a lot of time at church as Grandma (Caroline) served one time as Primary President and another time as Relief Society President.

Sometimes the lane and local roads were impassable because of snow or mud. When the roads were closed Caroline left early and walked the two and a half miles arriving at church in time to open the building for meetings. This was a wonderful lesson in responsibility and devotion to church callings for her children.
