According to church This weekend the Glenville Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses will dedicate its new place of worship, located two miles east of Glenville off Route 33 and 119. Dedication ceremonies will begin Saturday June 4, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend. Featured speaker will be Davi,' Kennedy of Rip]ey. An nrdained minister since 1967, Kunnedy has addressed scores of V. 'Jess congrega- tions throughout  oral states. The G]ew:he Congregation was formed about two years ago. About that time an unusual program was undertaken to construct a house of worship, since the congregation was getting too large to meet in a private home anymore. All Witness meeting places are called Kingdom Halls. meaning halls where truths about God's Kingdom are taught. The unusual thing about the building program wasn't the architec- tural design of the structure. It was the manner in which it and nearly all Kingdom Halls are built-by voluntary contributions and labor. Nearly all work was done by the Witnesses themselves. Thus con- struction costs were kept down, making possible a building that perhaps otherwise couldn't have been afforded. Much of the work was a pond at Aunt Minnie's Farm near Stumptown last Saturday, afternoon, May 28. State police trooper Greg Le- master said Robert Gregory, 22, apparently tired while swimming and went under. He was attending the Hess family reunion. Dr, Louis Manley of Glenville pronounced Gregory dead at the scene. The body was sent to the chief medical examiner's office in Charles- Manley, Grqory had a history of rheumatic fever, but the official autopsy reported the cause of death was drowning, Members of the Gilmer County and Normantown Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call.

I The congregation was assisted by members of other area congregations. The building was especially designed as a place for people to assemble for Bible study and Christian association. The hall's main feature is a small auditorium. Here members of the congregation listen to talks and share in programs involving audience partic- ipation. The auditorium is reminiscent of a schoolroom. There is no alter and there are no idols. The public is invited to tour the , :,'.'ling from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Refreshments will be served.
