Ashes on the go

Jan Smith (R) looks on as his wife, Marilyn, receives ashes from Pastor Pat Beeman of Sunnyside United Methodist Church. In recognition of Ash Wednesday yesterday, Beeman and two other pastors offered ‘ashes on the go’ to motorists and pedestrians at the corner of Ninth Street and Edison Avenue, just outside the Methodist church. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a 40-day season of spiritual preparation.
