Letters were also received from National concerning the secretary's report which had been lost. Mrs. Rawls sent a message that Monumental Educational Hall would be available for the use of the Needlework Guild on Tuesday, May 12th. The date and place were accepted for the 1959 Ingathering. A motion was made, seconded and duly carried to give Mrs. Wright a check for $19.50 to cover the cost of 50 yds. of material, which the Girl Scouts will make into receiving blankets for the Ingathering. Mrs. Sweeney said she and Miss Annie Tignor would contact the members of Miss Jane Neely's section and with the help of Miss Neely's sister, Mrs. Chas. Grandy, would try to procure the 110 articles needed for that section. Miss Jane Neely is unable to do the work this year. The matter of the Diamond Jubilee (1960) of Needlework Guild of America was discussed. Mrs. Wright suggested that this Branch send $50 and a motion passed to that effect. Mrs. Wright brought up the matter of having a Tea during the Ingathering on May 12th.
