By EILEEN SHOMO Daily Times Correspondent , CONCORD -- There are ilot many 7-year-olds who have the opportunity to be a "sidewalk superintendent" in their own backyard on a l a r g e construction project. One who does is Christopher Battin, son of Rev. and Mrs. Edward W." Battin, Old Concord Road. He has been " h e l p i n g " with the construction of the parish house addition to St. John's Episcopal Church since the groundbreaking early this year. Chris, who r e c e n t l y completed the second grade in the Concord Elementary School, arose early while school was in session to greet the construction workers. He spent almost all his time there after school. Perhaps his greatest thrill came when the foreman, John Hrysio o f P h o e n i x v i l l e , allowed the boy to carry some small pieces of lumber across the parking lot to his home to use for firewood. Mrs. Battin said Chris tries to imitate the men in my way he can. He spends hours in an alcove near the entrance to their home sawing boards and pounding nails. Mrs..Battin said he hurries over eagerly each noon when a food truck arrives and looks on wistfully while the men purchase food and drink items for lunch. "I usually have to pack him. a lunch, so he doesn't miss anything," his mother said. Since construction h a s begun, Chris has only changed his mind once about his ifetime ambition. He has now decided he wants to be a cement truck driver instead of a steamroller operator, his mother said. The $160,000 parish house addition is expected to be ready for occupancy in November. It will include seven new classrooms, offices for the pastor and church secretary, a multi-purpose room, choir rooms, combination lounge and library and an apartment for the sextan. CHURCH Cornerstone Services Set InOgd en UPPER CHICHESTER - A special service at 3:30 p.m. Sunday will mark the laying of the cornerstone of the $168,000 addition at the First Baptist Church of Ogden.
