Canajoharie, New York (Society).

Christian Science Society, Canajoharie, will dedicate its church edifice on Sunday, Oct. 15, at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. services to which the public is invited. Christian Science services were held for many years in Fort Plain, in what is the present Geesler building. In September, 1935, the group was recognized as a branch of The Mother Church, The first Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass.

On June 24. 1959, land and two buildings were given to the society at Lipe place, Canajoharie. On Oct. 15, 1960, remodeling of one of the buildings was started and on March 1 of this year the society held its first service in the new edifice. ... The name was then changed to Christian Science Society, Canajoharie, New York.

Sunday's dedication has been made possible through the efforts of members, friends and a grant received from the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy.—Fort Plain Courier-Standard (October 12, 1961).
