Tobacco Valley Grange
Tobacco Valley Grange met in
regular session Tuesday, November
u WI ^. master Zclmar Moses, in
the chair. The attendance was not
B u ite up to our average, due no
doubt to so many members being
engaged in cutting Christmas trees
and being tired out at the days end. ,
Sister Green reported on the re
suits of the recent Grange dance ;
which had a very poor attendance !
due to the tree season. ;
Home Ee. chairman, Eva Lcnarz j
reported that her committee had |
decided to raffle three luncheon sets. |
and the tickets are to be sold at 1
25 cents each. She also reported
that the committee would again
send a box of gifts to the Orphan's
Home and requested donations of
various sorts for the Christmas
.. .
Bill for the 1948 taxes was pre
sented and referred to the Executive
Cotnmittee. A communication from
sister Ruby Stevens was presented,
tendenng her resignation from the j
office of Ceres. Sister Elsie Helms
was elected to fill the vacancy. A
letter from State Master Weyde-|
meyer was read regarding the |
change of dates for the State Grange |
meeting. Worthy Chaplain, Mabel |
Peltier reported that Brother W. R. |
Smith is on the sick list, and that j i
Brother George Shea is now con
valescmg at home.
The Literary program was opened
by singing, "Tenting on the Old,
Camp Grounds." Brother enter
tained with several selections on
the guitar and harmonica.
Brother Fuller of the Conservation
Service gave a talk regarding the
Christmas tree industry. He stated
that over two million trees were
shipped from Lincoln and Flathead
counties in 1947, which was about
24% less than in 1946. He also dis-;
cussed the various causes affecting
the decrease. Sister Harvey gave
two piano selections in her usual
capable manner.
Worthy Lecturer Nell West con-|pi
ducted a questionnaire regarding
the activities of our several per
manent committees. _
