CLUB HOUSE FOR THOMSON
WOMAN S CLUB.
The club house for which the Thom
son 'Woman’s Club has been working
for a number of years seems about
to materialize. Two difficulties have
been in the way; a lack of funds and
the seeming impossibility of securing
r, V/^tion The funds are slowly
growing with prospects of augmenta-
..o.i tms ciub year, and the question
of a location seems to have been set
tled. At the next meeting of the
club, at the school auditorium Oct.
8th, this matter will be taken up.
As the president v hes every club
member to have a w ce in tbe set
tling of this important question, she
urges that every men er and every
woman in the town a 1 county who
wishes to join the club, be^ present
at this time.
A permanent home is one of the
best methods of establishing a per
manent club and to look back over
the achievements of the Thomson
Woman’s Club leaves no doubt in
anyone’s mind as to the value a club
is to a town.
