This Day In History: 1945-03-16
The Fardale Association held a business meeting and St. Patrick’s Day games party at the Fardale School. Little business was transacted but much fun was had at the party. The major business of the evening was an amendment to the bylaws and the formation of a new standing committee. When this was duly accomplished a member pointed out that the constitution called for two-thirds vote to change the bylaws. The proposed change was abandoned and the committee disbanded. The treasurer, George Emerson, reported that there were 116 members who had paid their dues. In the absence of the President, Raymond Johnson, the business meeting was adjourned and the games began. Oh yes, there were refreshments.
