Black and white photo of the full wall mural of Alice Stallknecht's "The Circle Supper" 1935. This mural portrays the once-a-week supper to which all townspeople were invited. From Alice Stallknecht' "A church supper shows Christ asking the Blessing- at this moment all recognize that He is the Christ, the good in man. These suppers are the key to democracy, where all may go to be fed and sit down together." Benjamin G. Sawin, photographer #alicestallknecht, #chatham, #chathamhistoricalsociety Mary, House Museum
