In 1943, during World War II, an Honor Roll Committee was formed at Lebanon Lutheran Church (now Holy Trinity) for the purpose of occasionally writing to the boys and girls. Thirty-four letters were written, one every month. These beautifully-written letters must have helt like heaven to the troops. Many wrote back; it was the best news they received from home. These letters tell a remarkable story of what was happening in a small town while they were away.
These letter have now been gathered together into a book that is being released in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of Holy Trinity. Elaine Sears, who compiled the book, was recently intereviewed by the Taunton Daily Gazette about the project, and she has also spoken at the North Easton Library.
Copies of the book are available for purchase online or directly from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Books can be purchased by sending $19.95 to the church at 143 Lincoln Street, North Easton, MA, 02356. Please make checks payable to "Holy Trinity Fundraising." Please note that this is payment for the "So We'll Meet Again" book.
