PRC Archives – 36th Annual YP’s Convention

For our PRC Archive item this week we feature some pages from the 36th annual PR Young People’s Convention booklet – a duplicate of which was discovered in the archives yesterday while continuing to sort through Rev.G.Van Baren’s material.

This a familiar convention to me (and will be to many of you!), because it was held in 1976 – the year my wife and I graduated from high school – and was hosted by Southwest PRC (Wyoming, MI), who planned a wonderful few days (Aug.24-27) at Camp Geneva in Holland, MI.

I hate torturing fellow church members and former classmates with old pictures, but reality is what it is. Yes, this convention is only one year away from being 40 years ago! So, my apologies for the “70s” look. But we thought it was cool back then, right? (And Mr.Jim Schipper? He hits it out of the park with his plaids and abbreviated tie! 🙂 Enjoy! And if you have memories to share, feel free to leave a comment.

O, one more thing that I could not help noticing and calling attention to: the opening speech by Rev.Herman Veldman was titled “Shining in Our Reading and Speaking.” Yes, in our reading! Are we?
