Mrs Mc Daniels of Sherwood High School led a group of boys and girls from the high school and junior high school in a program of Christmas music. The selections were competently arranged and so beautifully presented that we feel indeed privileged to have had the opportunity of hearing this excellent chorus.
After the program, the meeting was called to order; the minutes of the last meeting were read and corrected. The Treasurer reported a balance of $147.37 as of this date. Our gift of $100.00 to the hospital has been presented to Mrs Daniels and Mrs Ladson reported that it was greatly appreciated and will probably be used to purchase a much needed Table for instruments in the delivery room.
