The club had its beginnings in 1915 when the women in a rural area northwest of Algona decided to meet and work with friends and neighbors to bring better civic co-operation and social understanding among those living in the area where the four townships — Cresco, Lotts Creek, Union and Whittemore—join in Kossuth county. Mrs. A. Cruikshank was the first president; Mrs. Earl Dalziel, vice; and Mrs. Lloyd Potter, sec- teen sent and at Christmas used clothing and toys are sent to the home. Often a needly family is adopted at Christmas. To conserve gasoline during World War 11, the women limited the meetings to once a month and refreshments were cut down. They did Red Cross sew- tig by making quilts, pajamas, nittens and scuffles. Some "E >onds were also purchased. Other civic organizations to which they have made donations or gifts are the Retarded Children's school and the Iowa City hospital. The social standards of the club have provided much entertainment for the members and their families. Picnics and pot fluck suppers with games for the family have been held over the years. The club has turned many times to some fund raising device. Besides the dues which have had to be raised with the times they have had bake sales, auctions, rummage sales, grab bags, and collected pennies for the flower fund. Helen Elmore composed the song they sing at every meeting. The usual attendance is 28 to 30 members at each monthly meeting. They have their own folding chairs, dishes and silverware which are transported to COLLISION APRIL 6th A minor accident was investigated by the local police Tuesday shortly before 6 p.m. on Call street. Wayne D. Patterson, Irvington, was turning east off of Dodge street to Call street when a car driven by Harold J. Elbert, Rodman, was backing from a parking area and backed into his car. No charges were filed. treas. The first meeting was held at Mrs. Dalziel's. The constitution of the club stated that membership consisted of women who were willing to further the ideals of the club. They met every two weeks and the program consisted of roll call, lesson topic and some social entertainment. Soon the group was helping those outside their neighborhood. For 50 years gifts have been sent to the Christian Home Orphanage in Council Bluffs. In earlier days the gifts were 30 dozen eggs or. woolen comforters and pieced quilts made by the members. In more recent years cash gifts have hostess's home for each meeting.
