It was moved that an order be drawn for $3.29 payable to Mrs. Nellie Peters Black for the Free Kindergarten School, the same being the amount of the collection taken on Thanksgiving Day 1900, it having previously been agreed that said collection be given to said school.

Dr. McGlauflin who was appointed a committee of one to look after the rent owning by the church to the Good Templars reported that he had made no progress in adjusting same and suggested that as Br. Harvey was an officer in the Good Templars Lodge he could look after this matter better. Upon motion, the matter was therefore referred to Mr. Harvey.

It was moved and carried that the committee on Music make such arrangements with Miss Cawthon as to retaining her services in the choir as it saw fit, it being the sense of a majority of the members of the board that a sum not exceeding ten dollars for be paid her for this purpose.

Upon motion duly seconded and carried the Secretary was instructed to write Mrs. H.W. Young thanking her for past services but owing to our present financial condition we could not pay her anything and did not think it fair to her to ask her further services or accept same.

Upon motion duly carried the Finance Committee was empowered to make such settlements of accounts owning, as well as note for furnace, as it deemed best and to borrow money to do so if necessary.
