(Left to right) Rudy Zadnik , Ryan Downing,5 , and Dale Doll - all of Manchester- hold up the wooden crucifix in front of the Army & Navy Club on Main Street - one of 10 stops of the annual Way of the Cross Good Friday Service in 1997. Playing his tuba (right) is Salvation Army member Dave Russell of Manchester. Local parishioners took turns carrying the wooden cross to different downtown churches and other locations - starting and finishing at Center Congregational Church. The Manchester Area Conference of Churches sponsored the event.
