A note of thanks was received from the family of Mary Kalloch for flowers sent.

In opening the program, Mabel K. Rollins read several poems and told about her study of genealogy.

Several brought hobbies again this year and the first on this part of the program was Helen Harris who had many new salts & peppers since last year.  She told the story connected with several sets.

Hazel Hills had a collection of shells which formerly belonged to Mary Kalloch.

President Arthur Kalloch had pictures of the large new Armour Plant in Waterbury, Conn. of which his son Stanley is manager.  A letter telling of "Stan Kalloch week" was read.  This was especially interesting to the group present today.

Prof. E. B. Rollins brought more of his hobby pieces on lighting - some of the first pieces he made and told how he started to study the history of lighting.  The story of the Rust Light was particularly interesting.

R. W. Carey was called on to tell about the bonfires in Essex County Massachusetts - how they were built and so forth.
