ASHMORE -- Organizers of the 100th anniversary event for the Ashmore Presbyterian Church are looking for people and records to be a part of an observance planned for October.

Past members and ministers and their descendants are invited to attend the event set for Oct. 28 and 29, organizer Rhonda Humphres said.

She added that organizers are also asking for pictures, records and other items from the church's past.

Humphres said she can be contacted or items sent to her by email at grphonda@hotmail.com or mailed to her at 13001 N. County Road 2700E, Ashmore, IL 61912.

The current plans for the commemoration are to have an informal "family day" at the church on Oct. 28 and a possible cornerstone re-dedication and more formal event on Oct. 29.

The Coles County Genealogical Society is helping locate former members of the church and their descendants.
