Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta i nr. n^rHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD .OIL Annual Report Shows a Busy Year and a Successful One Canlston. Feb. 25.-The good effort? o� the ladies who from the local chap-1 ter of the Daughters of t!io Empire | are well known and yet your cor- ( respondent believes outside their! own members few realize how much j good they have accomplished espeo-1 ially for the soldier hoys overseas I and their dependents who are here with us. However in presenting thoir annual report the' ladies through their regent. .Airs. V. V. Christie, have sought also to express their hearty appreciation of the citizens of the com- j munity who have responded readily' to their appeals in the cause they represent. Each year has added to the usefulness the capacity aud the members of this organization and the future shows the need of all such efforts for kindliness �and aid due to the great war. As will be noted from the report given below these ladies have sought to interest our school children in the work of providing comforts for the soldiers overseas. There is ii large item expended for wool used in knitting. To aid this fund they are giving on Friday evening, March 1st. a "War Supper." to be served at the court house from six to eight o'clock p.m., and all are invited to be present. There will be as additional attractions "fortune telling booths" and also an informal dance folowing later in the evening. The success of. all their previous efforts presages a big attendance and a good time for all who are present. Their report is herewith appended and noeds no commendation as to the good work performed. The Report The Hampshire Chapter has just completed a very successful year. | Commencing with 22 members, two have joined during the year. Eleven regular, one special, and five executive meetings have been held during the year. The chapter has suffered heavily in the moving away of our energetic members viz. Mrs. Wakeley, Mrs. Mcintosh, Mrs. Gooding and Miss Keith who was the year in the Calendar club, and whose place has been filled by Miss Thomson. A brief report o� the various activities which follows, will give an idea of the work which has been successfully undertaken by the chapter. To the Red Cross 102 pairs of socks, many of^them knitted by the school children, have been given and forwarded overseas by the Red Cross as sold ers' comforts. Fifteen dollars a month is given for the filling of comfort bags. Further donations of cash bring our "sum for the Red Ctoss to $350.00. The following means have been taken to provide money for carrying on the work of the chapter: Membership fees J1.00 per annum, tag days, tens, whist drives, dances, and the Calendar club .which consists of one year, 12 months, fifty-two weeks, each paying one cent a day. or $3.65 a year. The school children have recently given in' the neighborhood of $25 in gum and chocolate bar, to be used in parcels to go forward shortly to the boys overseas who went from this district. The chapter has contributed to the following:-Educational, public school library. $15 and school prizes to the,! value of $10. We have paid out for | charity and relief, the sum of $72 to local parties. $50.00 to the Cauadian "War Contingent Fund, $100 for Hali-- fax relief, $100 for a Victory Bond. We gave a reception to returned veterans and presented war clasps to three members who had lost friends at the front. This ehapfer was represented at the nmial meeting in Victoria in May by Mrs. W. D. Spence. The Officers The officers for the new year are Unchanged for regent, secretary-treasurer, and standard bearer. First vice-regent-Mrs. John Holmes. Second vice-regent-Mrs. Ed. Ivans.
