Community section article of Ridgely, Maryland

Replanted Zion M.E church, Rev. J. H. Stevenson, pastor. On Saturday morning union services were held at Trinity A.M.E. church, Rev. T.F. Chaney, pastor. The history of the birth of the Christ Child was given in a gospel message by the pastor, Replanted Zion M. E. church Rev. Stevenson.                                             Saturday evening between six or seven, the members from both churches met in town and sang Christmas songs around the community Christmas tree in commemoration of the birth of Christ. Many whites were present to hear the singing, in spite of  the increment weather.
