the meeting adjourned after repeating the Lord’s Prayer.

During the social hour Rev Schmieder was called upon to say a few words. He spoke most highly of the untiring work of Mrs Hagen who owing to ill health was forced to resign from her office as Treasurer which office she held for more than twenty years. This was followed by a presentation to Mrs Hagen of a bible beautifully inscribed, Mrs Conrad making the presentation. Mrs Hagen very fittingly responded and promised not to let her interest in the work lag. and stated further that since St Matthews had really no organization she felt as if she were an outsider. He however assured her that such was not the case

Respectfully submitted

DE Zimmerman

Secretary
