Religious, civic groups come together to furnish chapel at county jail

Friday night’s appearance of one of the largest and most popular men’s choruses in the nation, the Brigham Young University Men’s Chorus, was made possible by the Tabernacle Concert and Lecture Series, a program offered by Cache Community Connections.A founding member of Cache Community Connections, Dean Quayle, says the inter-faith organization was founded soon after the 9/11 terror attacks and the move was spearheaded by former Logan Mayor Doug Thompson.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Quayle said early on Sheriff Lynn Nelson approached Cache Community Connections and asked for help in furnishing some chapel spaces at the new jail which was then under construction.”As a group we got together and raised money and were able to furnish the chapel spaces in the Cache County Jail,” Quayle explained. “The one in there is a dedicated chapel facility and it is used today by a lot of different faiths in a lot of different ways. It has been a very positive thing.”Quayle says there will be a very special 10-year anniversary program in the Tabernacle on or around September 11, 2011.
