I can't say for certain, but I"m guessing that for most of the 100+ years, the women of Independent Presbyterian Church have
gathered on the Friday before Palm Sunday and lovingly made palm crosses that would be pinned on each member as they entered the Sanctuary on Palm Sunday. I"ve been privileged to photograph this lovely gathering many times. There is much laughter and love as the older, more experienced members shared their techniques with the newer ones. I will admit that I mainly come for Betty Schriber's fabulous pimento sandwiches. This year, our church along with others across this country will celebrate in a different way. No palm crosses for us this year, but we still have these memories.
