If you have not attended the Sunday evening services at the Methodist church recently, you are missing some good music.  The Junior Choir, which is being trained by Mrs. Hudson, has charge of the singing, special solos during the league and preaching services, music by the orchestra, and a brief sermon, with a point that is reached without yards of talk is what awaits one.  The congregation was a fine one last week, but there is room for more.

Woman's Club Meets

The regular meeting of the Women's Club was held on Tuesday afternoon, in the clubroom, with Mrs. J.H. Underhill in the chair.  Several members were absent because of killing hogs and being out of town, but a good attendance justified the transacting of considerable business.  17 members were reported to have been present at the Hurlock Club the afternoon they so delightfully entertained.  Miss Dorothy Adams, Secretary of the League of Nations Non-Partisan Association, who spoke on Tuesday, Nov. 24th, was put on record as one of the outstanding occurrences of the winter.  It may be said that the Masonic Lodge held a very brief session that evening and attended the club in a body, and all were charmed with the address.  If she comes in the county again, she will have large audience, although the club room was filled to its capacity.  Mrs. Bennett and Mrs. Harper  were hostesses for the afternoon, and had a pleasing program followed by refreshments.

Ladies Aid Does Big Work

Since last March, the Ladies Aid Society of the Methodist Church has renovated the parsonage inside and out at a cost of $690.00 and at the regular monthly meeting which was held at the parsonage, the Secretary reported that the treasurer had paid all bills in full to date.  The birthday party which was held recently, netted $58.48, which amount covered the last payment.  It was decided to hold a bake on Saturday, December 12.
