Parsonite still waiting for new chapel

By Caroline Dickey | Apr 25, 2013

To the editor:

Many former “Parsonites” will be gathering at the civic center to be a part of the dedication of the beautiful windows that had been loved so many years ago in Barhydt Chapel.

I well remember the evening we were all gathered at the Barhydt Chapel. It was people who came from near and far, who had close attachments to Parsons. There were many tears.

The vice president of the “new” owners of the campus spoke. He said that he realized the sorrow, but they would be building a bigger chapel and we would all be welcome.

I have yet to see the “new” chapel, so since I am 92 years old, I will not live to see this “new” chapel!
