Pictures of Lemon Grove Baptist Church where we attended for over 25 years. Son Tom suggested several places to rent and celebrate Marlene's special Birthday. When he suggested Blaine Hall, wow that was it for me. Blaine Hall is the bottom floor of the picture on the right. We floated the idea to the other children and they were also for it. On the next day daughter Natalie called the Church office to see if we could rent it for the occasion? Yes!!
