As part of our 300th Anniversary Celebration, Jan West Schrock, senior advisor for Heifer International and daughter of its founder, will speak at a brunch in the second in the series, “The Church in Today’s Society” on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 11:15.

In 1944, as Dan West was handing out milk to needy children in war torn Europe, he realized, “These children don’t need a cup, they need a cow.” Returning home, he founded Heifers for Relief. Since that time, Heifer has helped more than 12 million families in more than 125 countries move toward greater self-reliance through the gifts of livestock and training in environmentally sound agriculture. Come hear Jan West Schrock discuss this phenomenal project and its lasting solutions.

The answer to last month’s question: The Big Shop, now located off Bailey Avenue on Big Shop Lane, was originally a carriage manufactory located elsewhere in town. Where was it located and why was it moved? is on page 48: It was located at the corner of Main Street and West Lane;
it was moved to make way for the construction of the new Congregational Church building.
