Trinity Lutheran Church in Altenburg, Mo., one of the oldest Lutheran parishes in Missouri, lost its steeple in a storm last May. That steeple had weathered the wind since the 1850s. Parishioners immediately began making plans to restore the steeple. Their efforts were rewarded last week when crews used tall cranes to hoist the newly reinforced steeple back to where it belong.
Hats off to Trinity Lutheran for its many years of service to Altenburg, one of the prettiest towns in Southeast Missouri.
