This Day In History: 1923-07-13
The Mahwah Women’s Club held a luncheon on the lawn of Mrs. Elmer J. Snow’s home on Olney Rd. Those at the speakers’ table were Mrs. Snow, Mrs. Lincoln, Mrs. Ball, Mrs. Waterman, and the Committee Chairmen.
It was announced that the American Legion is preparing a composite picture of Mahwah’s wartime heroes to be hung in the Library. The Committee on Education for Peace announced that the ten recommended books were in the Library. Mrs. Ball said that if all ten could not be read four were especially recommended: Philip Gibbs, “Now it can be Told”; Lowes Dickinson, “The Causes of War”; Will Irwin, “The Next War”; Charles Jackson, “What the War Has Taught Us”. Mrs. Keys asked for autos to take the people at the County Poor Farm for a ride. Victrola records were also welcomed at the Poor Farm. (Bristow)
