These 1964 photos are from Sam and
Bonnie Dodez. They were on slides, popular in the '60s
but slides required a projector and a screen to be seen.
So, the problem was . . . how to
get these small slide photos to our ACUMC website.
Sam Dodez took the slides to our church, projected them
to a screen, then Pastor Sam took pictures of
them with his digital camera. He took his
camera's memory card to Walmart and made these photos
for our website.
In 1964, the main entrance to our Sanctuary was on the
northeast corner, not
the northwest corner as it is now. The church looks
yellow here, that's just the photo,
I think our church was always white.
Bonnie wrote on the back of this photo, "1964, the new
Cross on the front of the church".
The new cross didn't show well, but this shows the
northwest door which did not enter the Sanctuary.

Photo at right: In 1964 our
steeple was struck by lightning. It was rebuilt by Bob
Flory Construction. This photo shows:
the steeple has been removed, and
(# two), it shows a better view of our new (in
1964) Cross on the
front face of our church.
These photos all turned out well, considering the way
that Sam Dodez and Pastor Sam copied them from slides.
Sometimes the dark edge of the movie screen shows on the
photo's border (above left and top). Some of these
photos seem to have a yellow tint. However, not bad at
50 year old photos.
1964, our newly rebuilt steeple, being lifted by crane
to be put back where it belongs. Sam Dodez tells me that
there were several men in the bell tower, waiting to
re-fasten the steeple when it arrives.
Photo on left: Almost in
place! I'm sure that the crane operator was being very
careful of the high voltage electrical wires (upper thin
wires, very dangerous, he must keep 12 feet away). Also note
the old style telephone wires in the lower part of the
photo. These telephone wires were not dangerous.
Again, we all want to thank Sam and Bonnie for
furnishing these 50 year old photos. Thanks to Pastor
Sam for figuring out how to get these old slide type
photos converted to regular prints that we could put
into our website.
Whoa! My, how things change in 50 years! (see next
photo) Here is our
church kitchen in 1964! Bonnie wrote on back of this
photo, "Kitchen was on west side of basement, the door
went into the furnace room". Note the bare exposed light
bulbs, small single table, walls need refinished.
Photo below shows a small section
of our present bright, modern kitchen. Or
go back to Photo pages 1 and 2 to review the pictures of our present kitchen and
our large Long Hall dining area.
Our new kitchen is the result of donations and hard labor
many friends and contractors. Thanks especially to Les
and our Trustees committee.
Mildred, with her ever-present cup of tea, helping in
our bright modern kitchen.
We're not sure who the other two helpers are . . .
