Memory Lane - July 7, 1971


This week, we introduce a new feature called Memory Lane. We will be combing our archives to take a look back at past stories from The Wayne Herald. You can see the full feature each week in the newspaper, beginning July 8. We will also post these stories and the featured photos from the original publications here at We hope you enjoy this walk down Memory Lane!

From the July 7, 1971 edition of The Wayne Herald:

Thomas Mercers Now Serving Springbank Church in Allen
Pastor and Mrs. Thomas Mercer arrived in Allen June 23 to serve the 60 members of the
Springbank Friends Church which is located two miles east of town.
Mercer, who delivered his first sermon Sunday morning, is no stranger to the Allen area.
In the summer of 1968, he had assisted the Rev. Phyllis Hickman who was serving pastor
at that time.
Mercers are replacing Keith and Judy Morse who are now serving at Hay Springs
Friends Church. Morses had been in Allen a year.
