Salvation Army Kettle
No Salvation Army scene would be complete without a Salvation Army band. A female character dressed in the distinctive blue and red of the army calls attention to the red donation kettle by ringing her bell. A male companion, dressed in matching colors plays the tuba while a younger member stands holding a bible. In 1995, Bob and Joyce Byers were invited to attend the Salvation Army School for officer training graduation where they were named the first two Samuel Logan Brengle fellows. At the ceremony they were cited for their service to the army as volunteers for their annual giving, Christian witness, and the establishment as two full perpetuating cadet scholarships for the school of officer training. “We have been incredibly impressed by the Salvation Army’s dedication to its work of serving Christ and helping man kind,” says Bob. It has had a profound impact on the way the Byers have chosen to run their business.
The Order of Samuel Logan Brengle fellows is named for a man who dedicated his life to the work of the Salvation Army. In the early 1900s Brengle rose through the ranks of the Army’s to become a mentor to the Salvation Army leaders around the world. This fellowship was established “to honor those who make significant contributes to the enhancement of the training of officers in the eastern US territories. Sine 1992, Byers’ Choice and the Byers family have raised over a million dollars in support of the Salvation Army and their many worthy causes.
