At a meeting of the Board of Governors of Waterloo College and Seminary held in May the following officers for the Parent Organization of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada were appointed.

Hon. President Dr N. Willison

Hon. Vice President Rev. F. Clausen

President Mrs Clara Conrad

Vice President Mrs. Laura Hagey

Secretary Decima E Zimmerman

Treasurer Mrs Florence Hagen

Besides these officers the following Conference delegates were appointed by the following churches, Stratford – Mrs. H. Riehl; 1st English Kitchener, Mrs CM Steinbach; Church of the Redeemer, Montreal Mrs J.R. Collins; Hanover

Shortly after the meeting of Synod in 1931 an appeal was sent to every church in the Canada Synod thru the local pastors to organize a “Branch Auxiliary” with

(Page 2)

a membership fee of $1.00 per year per member. The funds thus raised were to be forwarded the Parent Auxiliary and were to replace the money and work donations of the respective churches. This appeal was sent to 45 pastors. Replies both verbal and in writing were reseived from approximately 20.

A second appeal was forwarded a few weeks later and this brought in a few more responses. So far we have received 28 replies – some forwarding their usual donation others advising that they have organized and forwarding the annual fee. Two quilts were received from Nova Scotia.

The forming of Branch Auxiliaries is a new venture but if the first year is to afford an index for future years then the discontinuing of our “Annual Sale of Work” has been a good

move, especially since such a sale is a big undertaking and the responsibility of same usually falls on the shoulders of the few “Willing Workers”. By this new method of raising funds the responsibility is divided and no one is over-taxed.

Our Treasurer reports receipts this year of $922. as opposed to $ raised by Sale of Work. These figures should be sufficient proof to show that our new venture is proving a financial success especially after many more of our churches come across with their usual donations.

During the year very few outside churches have had Visiting Day at our College. We would like very much to emphasize this phase of the work especially since if the women would come to Waterloo College at least once a year they could

then see what is really being done by our women or what could be done.

Notice of the first General Meeting to be held at St John’s Church Waterloo at 3 P.M. June 1st was forwarded to each and every church irrespective of whether they had organized or not. An invitation was extended to all delegates to be the guests of the Waterloo Branch of the Auxiliary.

Respectfully submitted

Decima E Zimmerman

Waterloo June 1/32 Secretary
