Tioga (14 Nov 1918)

The Red Cross met Friday afternoon and elected officers for the coming year as follows: Mrs. John Seif, chairman; Miss Esther Marquardt, vice-chairman; Mrs. Hans Hoganson, secretary; Mrs. Ed. Wightman, treasurer; Mrs. Olaf Oleson, head of the sewing, and Mrs. W.A. Bedell, head of the knitting departments. The tickets on the first quilt are sold and there is another one being finished that will be on exhibit at Palms’ store. The tickets will be sold the same as before, 10 cents each, at Palms. Hurry up if you want a chance on a good quilt for they sell like hot cakes. In a couple of weeks there will be an entertainment at which time the quilts will be raffled. Look for the date next week.
