St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Building Committee

A collection of photos from St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in the 1950s was donated to the Society by David Klees. One of them is shown here; the rest are on our Facebook page. If you can identify anyone not named in the photo below, please contact us.

David's description: "In the late 1950s, St. Matthew's added a major expansion to the church building, as we baby-boomers were overflowing the children's Sunday school. I would guess that this is the committee which was in charge of that building expansion, but I do not know for certain. I identify the following: front row, left to right: unknown; Dr. Fred Reese, physician; I am certain one of the Lawson sisters, either Miriam (7th grade history teacher at Bloomsburg Area Junior High School, died shortly after she retired) or Lois (social worker, I believe she lived to be in her 90s); they lived together, neither ever married; unknown.

Back row, left to right: unknown; Rev. James Singer, pastor; Edward D. Sharretts."
