I got to meet Willhelm Friedrich, who was baptized last week, the seventh generation of his family to be baptized at St. Paul.
The St. Paul folks are raising money for their kids to go to the ELCA youth gathering in Detroit this summer.
The train depot dates to 1898. In 1885 there were only 150 people in Burton, but there were 400 just eleven years later in 1896. The highest population was in the late 1940s when there were nearly 1,000 people living in Burton.
Pastor Denise Seymore loves the kids.
