"No one is so rich that he does not need anothers help;
No one so poor as not to be useful in some way to his fellow man.
And the disposition to ask assistance from others with confidence,
and to grant it with kindness, is part of our very nature."
--Pope Leo XIII (1901)
 
Erected 1986 by The Citizens of Albion, Cranesville, Conneaut Township, Elk Creek Township.
