Church-going Auburn man featured in national magazine

Westminster Presbyterian Church member Earle Schemerhorn was featured in the December issue of the Presbyterian Church's national magazine "Presbyterians Today." The magazine's cover article was "Unsung Servants," honoring church members who give unselfishly of their time and talents to their local churches, often behind the scenes.

Schemerhorn was nominated by Westminster Pastor Phil Windsor and Clerk of Session Jill Fandrich. He was chosen from more than 100 nominees.

"Every morning church member Earle Schemerhorn arrives at the Westminster Presbyterian Church office to help with whatever needs to be done," reads the magazine article. "A retired newspaper editor, Schemerhorn is often called upon to proofread. He wields his blue pencil with a practiced eye, checking facts and looking up the meanings of words."

The article quotes Pastor Windsor, who says this of the church-going man: "He is extremely well-read, with a wealth of knowledge on many subjects. He likes to clip obscure but always interesting articles for me from various magazines and newspapers. His knowledge of local and church history is invaluable."
