The Rev. Richard Gensch will be installed as pastor of Our Shepherd Lutheran Church. The ceremony will take place at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Preston, with a reception to follow.

The pastor of installation will be the Rev. Lawrence R. Lineberger, Salisbury. The guest speaker will be the Rev. Robert Heckman, Newark, Del., and the liturgist will be the Rev. Floyd P. Duff, Preston. Other clergy on the Delmarva circuit will assist.

Born in Chicago, Ill, on Sept. 19, 1941, Mr. Gensch entered Concordia Preparatory School, Milwaukee, Wis., in his freshman year of high school, beginning his pre-theological training at that point. From Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Mo., he received the bachelor of divinity degree, May 26, 1967. During the year of vicarage, Pastor Gensch met the former Miss Wilma Loretta Pope, a member of the church he was serving. They were married Aug. 20, 1966.

Mr. and Mrs. Gensch will make their home at 300 Glenburn Ave.

 

A caravan of Dorchester County residents began a camper safari to Montreal, Canada, to visit Expo 67. Seven trailers made up the caravan, which formed at the Cambridge end of the Choptank River bridge at 6 p.m. to start their 500-mile journey.

The Dorchester Countians included Mr. and Mrs. James Robertson, Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Thomas, Mr. and Mrs. Buck Koski, and Mr. and Mrs. James Jester and their children.

Prominent on the back bumper of each vehicle were stickers advertising the Bay Country Festival to be held in Cambridge the third week of August.
