Submitted story

The Samantha Friends Church invites everyone to its annual birthday and Veterans Day celebration on Sunday, Nov. 13, beginning at 10 a.m.

The church will be celebrating its 204th birthday celebration as a church.

Singing will be provided by the Sweney Boys of Dayton and Alexis Tompkins, a high school student from Leesburg with a beautiful voice. There will be a time of recognition for all veterans who attend to thank them for their service to the church and the country and a small gift. There will also be a carry-in dinner after church. You can bring a dish or just your appetite as the church always has plenty of food.

The church is located at the corner of U.S. Route 62 and Fall Creek Road in Samantha, north of Hillsboro.

“Church members would love for you to come out and be a part of this special day of celebration and song and to just worship with us as we get to know you,” the church said in a news release. “We hope to see everyone there and please remember to thank a veteran.”

If you have any questions, call 937-393-2975.
