"Summer Sunday School At Caledonia State Park"
To Begin July 5th
For more than 100 years, Sunday school services have been held each Sunday during the summer months at the Caledonia State Park, near Fayetteville, in Franklin County. And, for many of those years, the services have been conducted by the Franklin County Sunday School Association, a county affiliate of the Pennsylvania State Sunday School Association.
These services usually start on Memorial Day weekend and run through Labor Day weekend. However, because of the concerns and restrictions involved this year with the coronavirus, the services will not be able to begin until Franklin County has moved from the "red" to the "yellow" restriction zone. A tentative start date for the services has been set for July 5th.
When the services do resume, a few changes will be made:
First of all, a short-range FM transmitter has been purchased that will allow people to remain in their cars in the parking lot of the Totem Pole Playhouse and listen to the service through their car radio.
Persons who wish to bring lawn chairs and sit in the area where the services are normally held MUST wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose. And, they must arrange chairs so that individuals or families are at least six feet apart. (Speakers, musicians and program leaders may remove their masks while at the podium.)
This year there will be no classes for children and the services will be held "weather permitting."
