Meanwhile . . . Church Basketball

Hello Dear Reader,
Meanwhile, Grandpa (Wes) Carter went to work again for Boyd Christiansen’s dad, Axel Christiansen. Mr. Christiansen was impressed enough with Wes’s ability as a carpenter than he spent many hours teaching him the building trade. This prepared Wes for his lifetime occupation of building.

There was not much for Wes to do in the way of activities, outside of work, so he played M-Men basketball. “M-Men” stood for “Mutual Men.” These were young men ages sixteen to, I think, about twenty-one, and basketball was part of the Mutual program. Church sports were a big deal back then. I guess they still are in some areas. I haven’t kept up with such things for years.
