They met in a rented hall, and like probably every other branch they looked forward to the day when they could build a chapel of their own.
There’s a whole ward now in Southern California’s Lake Elsinore, with a Family History Center, and there are other nearby wards in places like Wildomar and Sun City and Perris, each with a modern chapel. In 1940, though, there were only about a dozen LDS families in the Elsinore Branch – the Mellons and Hales and Jensens and Bradshaws and Statons and a few others. Like most branches, they depended on missionary elders to help them with their meetings and the organization of their Sunday School and MIA programs.
