The Hundred-Year Barn

One hundred years ago, a little boy watched his family and community come together to build a grand red barn. This barn became his refuge and home—a place to play with friends and farm animals alike. As seasons passed, the barn weathered many storms. The boy left and returned a young man, to help on the farm and to care for the barn again. The barn has stood for one hundred years, and it will stand for one hundred more: a symbol of peace, stability, caring, and community.
