THE ROCK ISLAND! '. ARGUS
, FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1909.
PLANNING TAG DAY
Associated Charities and Kings'
Daughters Prepare for
Work May 29.
SELECT WORKERS SOON
Meeting Is to he Held Monday to Con
clude Arrangements Hope to
K.xceed 10O8 Figures.
The Associated Charities and the
King's Daughters have selected Satur
day, May 29, as tag Cay and on that
date will, ask everyone on the streets
of the city to contribute something to
the charity work of the two organiza
tions. May 10 was tag day last year
and during the day the lady workers
collected close to $1,00 to be ex
pended in charitable work in the city.
Tag day will be conducted much as !t
was last year and every one will Ivj
tagged upon the payment of any sum
from live cents up. Horres, -buggies,
whips, automobiles, bicycles, dogs,
baby carriages, in fact everything will
be tagged. This form of raising money
for charitable purposes has proved
very popular for the reason that every
one can contribute something whether
large or small, depending upon the size
of t he pocketbook and at the samo
time knowing that each sum no mat
ter how small will go for a good pur
pose. Select WurkrrH Monday.
The city workers have not yet been
rejected but a meeting will be hold
jointly by the two organizations Mon
day evening at the Harper house and
at this time the city will be divided
into districts and the chairmen of the
various committees will be appointed
who in turn will select their workers.
Those in charge of the tag day hope to
increase by several hundreds of dol
lars the amount collected last year.
