Extending Extravagant Welcome

Masonic Cemetery Tour—August 31

Join us after worship August 31 for a tour of the Masonic Cemetery—a Eugene treasure just three blocks from church. The tour will be led by FCC member Denny Hellesvig, who is on the cemetery board and is the cemetery treasurer. Denny will take us to see the tombs of our city father Eugene Skinner and the first governor of Oregon John Whiteaker. Many Eugene notables are here: Friendly, Luckey, McCornack, Chambers and Kerns. Of special interest to us is the “Congregational Corner” where Thomas and Cordelia Condon are buried. Thomas Condon was a Congregational minister, the first geology professor at the University of Oregon, and a founding member of First Congregational Church 125 years ago. Wear walking shoes, bring water and a snack if desired, and come prepared to immerse yourself in local history. You won’t want to miss it!
