The Society's meetings.

Season of 1918-1919.

October 2, 1918, at the opening meeting of the season, some twenty-five persons were present to hear Representative Fred Burrell, who spoke upon the Constitutional Convention and the Amendments.

November 21 was the largest attended gathering, when Mrs. A. T. Hatch, of West Medford, told of her work and experience overseas in France.

December 10th meeting was styled a Council Fire, and was a retrospect by members of the incidents and doings of the Society during the past two years, and some plans were formulated to be worked out. Light refreshments were served.

January 21, 1919. The annual meeting was given to the reports and election of officers. The former board was reelected, with this exception: the curator and librarian, Miss Lincoln, was transferred to the vicepresidency, and Vice-President Remele was chosen to take charge of our library and collection.

February 17. Rev. G. Bennett Van Buskirk of Trinity Church gave a timely and interesting talk on ‘Three Eminent Americans—Washington, Lincoln and Roosevelt.’ Light refreshments were served by the Hospitality Committee.

March 17 proved a cold and disagreeable day, affecting the attendance in some measure. The President read a paper of local interest, ‘The Story of an Ancient Cow Pasture,’ which was supplemented by reminiscences by members.

April 23. Sag-my-nah Council, Camp Fire Girls, of West Medford, transferred their meeting to our assembly hall, an enjoyable occasion, and fully noted in the Register.

May 19. President Charles Edward Mann, of Malden Historical Society, presented an interesting story of ‘A Scrap of Paper,’ in which a number of Medford and Malden men—long dead and gone—figured not a little.
