Celebrating Birthdays

Shown here: Patsy, Harold and Beth with Daryl standing behind them struggling to hold the church bank that is weighted down with the combined birthday money of all three.

Every Sunday, between church and Sunday School, we do a birthday celebration. People with birthdays near that Sunday put a penny for every year they've been alive in the bank. I believe it was Roy Stoll who came up with the idea to put a dollar in for every year when your birthday falls on a Sunday. I did that one year and the treasurers (one of them being Harold) asked me, "Is this a mistake? This is hard to believe." I had to ask for clarification, "Do you think I'm not that old or that I don't have that much money?"
