Organization for 1918.
The organization of the Historical Society for the current year is herewith presented.
A copy is sent to each member with the notice of the March meeting, and will serve as notice of appointment of committees as a whole and individually, by the Board of Directors.
The first named is expected to see that each committee promptly begins its work for the Society interests.
The Society is now housed in permanent quarters, conveniently located, and after the inconveniences of recent years should take up with interest its important work.
Will each member of these committees readily report to its chairman, and each committee have a friendly rivalry with each other, and so boom our Society this year.
Some surprise has been expressed that the Society should assemble for its meeting on the heatless Monday evenings called for by the fuel administrator.
Our reply is, that as an educational
institution, and patriotic withal, we bestconserve our resources-fuel and light included — by attending to “business as usual,” and at the regularly appointed times, at no excessive expense.
On three occasions there has been the new and interesting feature of instrumental and vocal music, which will be continued.
Light refreshments on two occasions have added to the social interest, and not materially depleted the treasury or caused any non-observance of meatless, wheatless, or eatless days.
It is the desire and intention of the Society, through its Directorate, to fulfill its mission in our good old city of Medford
To this end it asks the co-operation of all its membership, both present and prospective.
