A number of folks have attended all, or nearly all, of the July Fourth get-togethers. On Sunday, church members hosted the 40th annual social. Although it is called an ice cream social, ice cream is only one of many foods served. Ladies of the church served hot dogs, barbeques, and coney dogs accompanied by beans and salad. A large assortment of home made pies with ice cream topped off the meal. Proceeds from the food sales benefit youth programs. Pastor Mike Stangland brought a short devotional from Galatians 6:10. Before the musical portion of the program, Rev. Arthur Aadland, who organized the first social in 1964, offered a prayer of thanks for the blessings we share and the freedoms we take for grant- ed in America. Rev. Arthur Aadland, retired pastor of Old Westbrook, prayed and thanked God for the freedoms often taken for granted in America. He was Instrumental in organizing the first ice cream social in 1964. It was fitting that one of Old Westbrook's former young people returned for the '40th anniversary cele- bration.
