Hopewell celebrates Lamar Wallace’s 102nd birthday

To celebrate member Lamar Wallace’s 102nd birthday this Thursday, members of Hopewell United Methodist Church in Tyrone recreated a 1940s themed “USO Canteen.”

The event was held on Nov. 13.

In the tradition of the USO, church members provided home-made chili and hot dogs, and provided home-grown entertainment from the World War II era. Members scoured attics and basements and provided vintage memorabilia to use as table decorations. Old uniforms were taken out of mothballs and younger and leaner youth were recruited to wear them for the occasion.
