The Red Cross meeting at the hotel Friday afternoon was well attended. It was a fine day and everyone must have felt the need of fresh air for it was the first time some have attended. Considerable work was done in the line of sewing. There is a let up on knitting at present on account of scarcity of yarn. Let’s see if we can still further increase the attendance at our meetings. Every bit you do, no matter how little, will be appreciated by our soldier boys, who have left their homes to fight for us. We surely ought to be willing to spare one afternoon a week working for their benefit and comfort. Remember it is every Friday afternoon at the hotel at Tioga, and be sure to come.
Tioga will celebrate the Fourth of July this year. The Red Cross Society has the management of the celebration and all proceeds will go to the Red Cross. A bowery will be put up with a good floor and dancing will be one form of amusement. Committees have been appointed for various other kinds of entertainment. You need not bring your dinner as hot lunch will be on sale at the grounds. Everyone come and have a good time.
