Program chairman, Kathleen VanBuskirk, in a surprise move (to the secretary) presented an envelope of cash to her as a token of appreciation from members present for work in behalf of the society.

Mrs. VanBuskirk then introduced Virginia Lucas, instructor and supervisor of the weaving department at S of 0, who spoke on the "History and Art of Weaving." Articles of weaving were on display and several members participated in the discussion that followed. Ralph Lucas showed a stone belonging to the Ralph Foster Museum. This stone, about 8 or 9 inches wide and 3 inches deep and not yet identified as to use or purpose, was found in a cemetery and is in the shape of a basin with a hole in the bottom.

President Brown reminded the group of the books that the society has for sale, announced March the 8th as the next meeting date, and wished everyone a Merry Christmas.
