This Day In History: 1942-03-30
The Mahwah Unit of the American Red Cross’ Ramapo Valley Chapter announced that they were closing their sewing room until further notice. Those present finished up garments which had been started and made arm bands for the First Aid Stations, but, since no further supplies of cloth had been received, there was little that the group could do on future Mondays. A supply of kaiaked and navy blue wool had been received for preparing gloves and mittens for servicemen. Any knitter could pick up a supply for work at home. Since there were more than thirty workers present, the Canteen Department served a hot lunch for 25 cents. Mrs. Ian Graham was in charge of the lunch preparations.
