The Five Mile Sunday School Class was a little project sponsored by the Ward Communty Church. It was located at the head of Five Mile, in the section then known as Number 6. The weekly gatherings took place from 1927 to 1929 and were attended by nearly 100 people each week.
I can only imagine what Christmas must have been like at Ward, WV. I was not there and have only the stories of grandparents, aunts, uncles and people who comment here on this blog to kindle my imagination. I believe it was special time. It was such a close-knit community, I know this because of how many still seek out the reunions and come here to my blog to remember it.
