Cranbrook Rotary: 0050.0635

REV. T.J. FERGUSON SPEAKER AT ROTARY – Club named Alex. Chisholm As Its Representative On The Relief Committee.

            Rev. T.J.S. Ferguson, B.A., of Nelson, was the speaker at the weekly luncheon of the Cranbrook Rotary Club Tuesday noon in the Victoria Café.  The speaker took for his subject “The Prospector,” stating that each and every one of us was a prospector, sampling the various ores of life, some of which proved to be pure gold, while others were just rock of no value to the social fabric.  Rotary had prospered for the reason that it was fundamentally sound.  There was a mingling together of men of every religious belief, working with an object for the betterment of mankind.

            Alex. Chisholm, who represented the club on the relief committee last year, was again named to represent the club.  Financial assistance will again be given this year.  No definite sum was named, the club preferring to leave the matter open and assist meeting the situation as it arises.

            Rev. Bryce Wallace was a guest of the club.
