The J.S. Red Cross met with Mrs. Martha Dillenbeck Thursday afternoon. Most of the ladies are knitting sweaters this month. The next meeting will be held with Mrs. Clark Hatton next Friday, Nov. 29. Everyone come and knit. All those knitting sweaters are requested to have them done so they can be handed in to the Greenwood chapter not later than Dec. 10.
