Map Second Baptist Financial Campaign

Highlighted by pledges of an intensive campaign to reach success in a financial drive, approximately 100 members of Second Baptist Church in Holyoke attended a kickoff dinner Wednesday night in the Roger Smith Hotel. Expansion of religious activities and rebuilding of church facilities to enable adoption of an enlarged program are among the major factors that prompted a campaign, church leaders said. Seated, left to right are Ralph Morrill, general chairman; Walter O. Harvey, Elmer C. Tucker, and William R. S. Chase; standing Donald Cramer and J. Harold Ely.
