With the new attention to North Bay and its potential development as a conservation and recreation area, there is renewed interest in the history of North Bay, Hudson's other bay. As a contribution to that history, Gossips shares this item, discovered in the Hudson Evening Register for Saturday, April 28, 1917.
The baptisms, which involved full immersion in the river, were to happen the next day, Sunday, at the North Dock, performed by Rev. Silas J. Harper. The church for which Harper was the pastor was not identified in the article announcing the event.
