Spring Hill grows by bus, what say?
Spring Hill Church, four miles from Waterford, until three years ago averaged 40 in Sunday School and 40 in Training Union. Now the Sunday School enrollment is 123 and Training Union enrollment is 85. Much of the increase is attributed to the bus transportation the church has provided for its members. Among those who assist with the original small bus and the two large 36-passenger buses are John Cardwell, C.B. Ash, Sunday School superintendent, W.T. Young, Marvin Wells, Melvin Moore, Nelson Young, J.H. Johnson and Malvin Westmoreland. “Expenses are heavy for the buses, tires and gasoline, but we’re making it. Our five small rooms are really crowded,” writes Mrs. W.T. Young, Training Union director. Rev. Frank Cox is the pastor.
