1923: Jerome Easter Sunrise Service.


"One of the most attractive church services ever held in the district will be the Easter 'sunrise' service to be held Sunday morning at 6 o'clock on the summit of the hill behind the United Verde offices, often known as 'fireworks' hill."

"The United Verde and the United Verde Extension have given permission for cars and pedestrians to cross their grounds freely and those attending the service will find that the easiest way to reach the top of the hill is to go by way of the United Verde 300 level, starting the ascent just back of the company offices. At this point the slope of the hill is gradual and there is a good path to the summit."

"THE PROGRAM: The sevice will open with the singing of two well-known Easter hymns. Hymn books will be provided for all. The singing will be followed by a prayer by Mrs. M. R. Corbett, another Easter hymn, a scripture reading by Rev. T. R. Williams of the Episcopal church, an anthem by the choir, an address by Rev. J. T. Black, pastor of the Haven Methodist church, a closing hymn and the benediction. The service will begin promptly at 6 o'clock."
