The Ministering Circle, a charit able organization of about fifty members, was formed in Wilming ton in 1888. During the first year the work was confined to assisting needy persons in the community. Other residents will recall that in 1890 there was established at Wrightsvilla Beach an instution known as “The Shelter of The Sil ver Cross” to be used as a summer retreat for improverished sick chil dren with their mothers. This shel ter was maintained until October 30, 1899 when the building was swept away by a severe storm. In 1907 The Ministering Circle as sumed responsibility of the salary of a registered nurse whose gentle services would be among the poor of the city. In 1917 another nurse ment of what grew into the Wil mington Public Health Nursing as sociation. The salaries of two, of these nurses are paid by the Minis tering Circle and are known as nurses of this organization. In 1925 a furnished Memorial room was established in the James Walker Memorial hospital. The money to carry on the charitable work of the Ministering Circle has come from it's membership, from interested friends and from the proceed of public entertainments given annual ly. No general solicitation for funds has ever been made, therefore a most cordial invitation is extended to the many friends of the Minis tering Circle to assist in the char itable undertakings of this organ ization. * * * Announce Birth Mr. and Mrs. L.
