He has taught a Sunday School class of young people for many years, and has helped organ­ize a church affiliated Youth Club de­signed to provide wholesome recreation for young people in a rural community. He has provided th.e leadership that has, for the last 30 years, made the Remington Soybean Day one of the out­standing events in Indiana agriculture.
