The Alder Presbyterian Church holds a lot of memories for people.

Diane Purdy Arnold says, “I believe that this was moved out of Old Alder. I used to get to ring the bell for Sunday School after Uncle Charlie died. Then later when I was working at the store, I would go up on my lunch break and play the piano or organ. Lots of memories: Mom started the pot luck dinners there shortly after we moved to Alder.

Paulette Gilliardi remembers, “Robin Boettcher was my Sunday School teacher at that church when I was a kid.”

“I was the flower girl for one of the Campbell girl’s wedding here, 1949-50,” says Carla Harting Altheide.

    Diane, have you seen the book Alder Pres published for our 100th anniversary? I have a copy and would be happy to send scans if you’d like it. It details much of the known history.

      Hello Josie,
      I would love to see scans of the Alder Pres 100th anniversary book. Do you still have it? Many thanks!
      I believe my great-grandfather built that building.
