The 'little historic church of Carbon' will celebrate 126 years in the community this afternoon. An "All You Can Eat" Spaghetti dinner, including a beverage and a brownie will take place between 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., with two country-western bands providing entertainment between noon-4 p.m.
There will be an auction of baked goods and new merchandise donated by local merchants and a large rummage sale during the afternoon at the building.
Children of all ages can stop by for some clowning around after 5:30 p.m., when clowns Eule Nevages and Shees Quilt provide laughs and balloons while the church sells ice cream.
Church historian Norma Cress will be on hand throughout the afternoon to give an oral history and answer questions about the church and its origins, dating back to the Free Missionary Baptist Church of Wales. The church relies upon money received from rentals and this fundraising project to help keep the facility open during the year.
The church is one block west of the United Methodist Church in Carbon. For more information, call (812) 446-4925.
