The chapel area was completed recently, after years of planning. The chapel is carpeted, with an oak altar and cross made by Lester Yoder. Jim Seward made the stained glass panel, behind the altar which will be illumin- tated. A multi-purpose speaker system was installed in the cha- pel and adjoining dining room and can be used for hymns or dinner music. The chapel was funded by donations from resi- dents' families, friends and other interested parties in the community. Hearty and well-deserved best wishes to Dr. J.R. Miller, who was honored by the Iowa Medical Association for 50 years of service as physician and surgeon. Following gradu- ation from medical school and internship, he served as a medi- cal officer during World War II. He returned to his hometown January 1946 to establish a medical practice with his fa- ther, Enos D. Miller. Dr. Enos served the community from 1910 to 1966. In 1985, the Miller and Miller medical office car- ried the name of a third gener- ation, that of Dr. Dennis Miller, the son of Dr. Jay and Lavera.
