From halfway across the world, a loyal MAID watcher noticed an error. This was not the Rainham church in 1965, as originally labelled by the photographer, but South Cayuga Mennonite Church, Dunnville, Ont. Comparing it to another photo of South Cayuga, he urged us to “look at the west end of this meetinghouse. Exact same porch, exact proportions, exact same pitch on the roof, and finally, the clincher is that there are 18 boards alongside the door. This . . . has to be . . . South Cayuga.” We agree, and made the change in the description. Mennonite archivists are always grateful for the strong dedication to place and story found in our Mennonite communities.
