PRINCETON — The final Lenten luncheon and musical presentation and meditation was enjoyed by guests of the Hampshire Colony Church on April 16 in the church sanctuary. The offering of musical selections was by the Handbell Ensemble from the First Methodist Church in Princeton.

After the meditation and musical selections, guests retired to Fellowship Hall where a simple lunch was served by the HCC kitchen staff.

The Lenten service and luncheons have been provided by the church for more than 50 years, according to some of the older members of the church, and it is planned to continue for another 50 years.

The Fellowship ladies and Pastor Sarah thank the community for their attendance and support of the Lenten services and luncheons. For information on Sunday services of the church, call 815-875-2329.
