Interview 86a : In this interview with Becky Bailey, Maureen Weimer reminisces about Pine Grove Church in the Red Town area of Diboll. Mrs. Weimer's husband, Charles, pastored the church in the early 1950's. She talks about Mrs. Fannie Farrington's desire to bring a church to that area of Diboll, convincing H.G. Temple to build them a church building. Mrs. Weimer recalls Women's Society of Christian Service meetings, the United Methodist Women group, Vacation Bible School, and Methodist Youth Fellowship. She mentions the Farringtons, Ballengers, Tatums, Mirandas, Guerras, Simms, and Greers, among other families that attended the church.
