FROM THE PAST
an invitation to a wipeout of the whole section by fire.
* * * The Galilee Evangelical Lutheran Church is dedicating their newly completed church building in Harbor View on Kent Island on Aug. 13, at 3:30 p.m.
Services have been held over the years in an empty store in the Kent Island Shopping Center while the group made intensive efforts to raise the necessary money to first buy their ground and then construct their building. Funds were raised by the efforts of members of the congregation.
* * * Storm damage costs are mounting as both the / state Roads Commission and County Roads crews continue to work and repair washouts from last week’s deluge.
C.E. Turner Sr., SRC maintenance engineer, has made a rough estimate of $10,000 alone for labor ad equipment in the mammoth cleanup and repair job.
He said they expect to use 4,500 cubic yards of gravel and that damage to drainage structures may top the $250 figure.
