This Day in History: 1944-12-03
12,900 pounds of paper and 400 pounds of rags were collected on the second as series of salvage Sundays run by the Boy Scouts for a war effort. Six trucks provided by American Brake Shop, P.D. Ash Stephen Birch, John Storms and the Townships were on hand at 1:00 PM. Scouts from troops 50 and 140 covered the Township in three hours. R. W. Griffith, County Salvage Chairman, was on hand and praised the efficiency of the operation which was under the chairmanship of Charles Hallenbeck. Subsequent salvage days were set on the first Sunday of each month.
