Three new stained-glass windows were dedicated at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Reidsville.
The windows were given in honor of Mrs. George Lee Irvin and her late husband by their six children. Mrs. Irvin, the former Jane Bethel Galloway, is the second-oldest living member of the St. Thomas parish, to which four generations of her family have belonged.
Mr. Irvin, a prominent businessman, was a Presbyterian.
The new altar windows replace the nearly plain, tinted windows that were a part of the original church structure.
