To Gravel the Street to Methodist Church
Monday night the Wesley Brotherhood decided to gravel the street leading to the church from Buffalo Street, a distance of 440 feet. A part will be sixteen feet wide, and at the church it will be 40 feet wide, giving ample parking and turning space. A committee of R.H. McGraw, C.T. Johnson, and C.H. Grayson was appointed to superintend the work and to secure the funds- most of which was secured at that session. Many members contributed money, others contributed loads of gravel. Some 200 yards will be required for this work.
A church committee of L.M. Nettelton, C.O. Markham, and Tom Gross was appointed to work with a like committee from the Missionary Society, looking to the re-roofing and re-papering of the church. This work is very much needed and will be a work well worth doing.
Rev. W.Y. Switzer, presiding elder of the Durant district, was present and held the First Quarterly Conference of the year. Matters relating to church progress were satisfactory, every department being reported in fair working order. Thirty men were present at this Conference and they are getting an insight into the workings of the church, which can be had in no other way.
The Caddo Club is making great preparations for attending the distract Convention at Durant February 7th. They will take their orchestra to this meeting which will help enliven the meeting.
A committee composed of Horace Sargent, Maurice Beck, and I.C. McCoy was appointed to look into the matter of organizing a Junior Brotherhood among the boys, giving them something to get busy about. The boys of our town should have some means of expression of their spirits and the church should offer it.
Ron Sargent, Claude Honsinger, and G. C. Braudrick are the entertainment committee for the meeting February 1st. I.C. McCoy, Frank Williams and Ralph Evans were hosts at this meeting and served delicious pie and coffee.
