What a great day it turned out to be Sunday, August 5th, in Bishop Burke Park where our worship service "under the tent" highlighted the centennial year of the end of the Silver Lake Chautauqua style of doing things. The arson of the Amphitheater signaled the end of the era..
Hospice Chaplain Mark Harris, pictured to the left, was the guest speaker of the morning. He traveled from Harrisburg to be with us. The Warsaw Barbershop Chorus also sang and provided a beautiful ending to a very good service. Appreciation is extended for the above photos to Sue Hunter and Lisa Schiske.
Built in 1888, it had an arched roof 32 feet high and was 80 feet by 120 feet in size. The cost was $2,000.
The construction included plenty of open space for air circulation including at the very top where both light and air could be controlled.
