I remember hearing my grandparents recall a time when the local church was the epicenter of community events and social gatherings.

I remember when I was around 10 years old, my friends and I walked around town during recess one time. One of my buddies at the time led the group to a small culvert along the railway tracks where he hid a Playboy magazine to show everyone.
