“A new organization has been formed at St. John’s Episcopal church, to be known as the Girls Friendly.  The club is for high school girls both graduates and those still in school. All girls are invited whether they belong to the Episcopal church or not.  The club has a four fold plan — Education, service, missionary and social.  The organization was completed Tuesday, February 15th, and it was decided that meetings would be held weekly on Tuesday evening, at 7 o’clock, at the homes of the girls.  The following officers were elected: Miss Stephanie Smith, Chairman; Miss Marjorie Boardman, vice chairman; Miss Mildred Cook, secretary and Miss Stella Johnson, treasurer; Mrs. Dana Brown, Mrs. C.F. Berry and Mrs. C.L. King are advisors.  The first class meeting was held Tuesday, March 1st and the time was devoted to the making of paper roses.  Next Tuesday the class will make water lilies.  Classes for other kinds of work will be organized later.”
