Sutherlands in the 1920's

St. John's Lutheran Church

Rev. A. Fehlberg

In 1921 the St. John's Lutheran church was enlarged. The church cemetery was next to the church.

At Christmas time, the Christmas tree was decorated with sweets, which where shaped as candles, sleighs, donkeys, shepherds, stars etc. They cost around 2/- to 4/-. When the Christmas tree was to come down, they divided the lollies between the children in the Sunday School.
