Choir members from the United Methodist churches in Tonica and Hennepin performed during a combined service on Aug. 11 at the Tonica United Methodist Church. The event was attended by 72 people. The service was followed by a potluck meal, which had to be moved from the park to McFerson Hall because of rain. Special guests attending the event were the Rev. Jim Barnett, Vermilion River District superintendent; Sandy Shay, administrative assistant VRD, and her husband; and retired Pastor Larry Collins, an old friend of Rev. Barnett, and his wife, Susan. The two churches hope to have joint services quarterly and have the joint choir often.
