HTML - Lesson 5
We're going to learn HTML the right way.

This week we'll look at some links to online resources for creating web pages. All of the Software and reference material you need to develop great web pages, unlike this one, are available online, for free.

Why not create a page and have it published with the next Sandpiper. Just email the html and picture files.

Here's the Church


The following is the fourth part of "The United Attawaugan Methodist Church 1870-1970 100th Anniversary", a history of the church produced by the members for the centennial anniversary. You'll read it here exactly as it was written then.


Early Days Of First Church At Attawaugan

Described by Horatio Brown of Putnam

Established in 1870 with Rev. Nelson Goodrich as the minister

Sarah Alberta Caffrey
(Mrs. Bartlett Caffrey)

While Rev. Duxbury was pastor, he organized Junior Epworth League meetings in Ballouville every two weeks, This in addition to those held in Attawaugan. When Rev. W. D. Adams came in 1909 he continued with them and Mrs. Caffrey was one of the leaders.

In 1910, Mrs. Caffrey became the teacher of a class of teenage boys, namely:

James Pray
Arthur Waterhouse
Earl Weeks
Curtis Brown
Walter Rollinson
Robert Brierly


There always remained a special place in her heart for these boys. Due to the First World War the class broke up about 1917, as some were called into service with the militia and others left Attawaugan to accept work in other cities.

Mrs. Caffrey was Home Department Supt. from 1920-1924. Then began her long term of service with the Primary Class 1927-1944. Many a Sunday morning she walked miles to call for her pupils and then saw them safely home afterward.

Most of her adult life was spent in church work of some kind. Impulsive and intense, she sometimes drew criticism from certain people, but her one concern was that the children come to know the Savior and I feel sure that some who are active in the church today might not be there if it had not been for her early efforts with them or their parents.

The Polaroid PDC-300 camera went into the water for a few seconds while taking pictures of an Alexander Lake sunset. It took a picture by itself while shorting out from the water, and after being opened up and dried next to the wood stove, it seems to be working fine now.
