Our photo is the Sanctuary of the Avon Congregational Church in 1918. The flag is possibly a “Man in Service” flag, and perhaps the 13 stars signify church members who were serving in World War I at that time. The Christmas tree is decorated with garlands, doves, and other items.The two chairs beside the tree, still in that location today, were purchased in 1896 with funds from ACC’s Ladies’ Aid Society.
