Woman’s Union – Meeting Minutes Jul 20, 1920 (Sale of Articles from Old Universalist Church)

Stone Mountain, July 20, 1920

At the invitation of Mrs. Toepel, the Woman’s Union met at her home near Stone Mountain.

The meeting was called to order by the president and the minutes read and approved.

The president reported that the committee of ladies appointed to see after the articles at the Universalist church had some of the dishes, etc. from the that church, but many things had been taken away by unknown people according to the contractor.

It was decided to have the rummage sale that week if a suitable place could be had. Several members reported that they had sold articles for the rummage fund and had the money. Mrs. Douglas inquired about spraying the church carpet.

It was decided to omit the August meeting of the Union.

Mrs. Gaylord gave a very interesting talk on the birds, telling of their notes and names, showing many pictures of them. So far she had seen 52 near her home in Atlanta.

Several members assisted Mrs. Toepel in opening the lunch boxes brought by the members and soon a feast of good things were spread in the dining room. All said they were hungry and enjoyed not only the lunch, but the coffee prepared by the hostess.

A clear and beautiful view of Stone Mountain was much enjoyed by the visitors as also was the lovely home of Dr. and Mrs. Toepel.

Those present were Mesdames Edwards, Draper, Douglas, Faulkner and her mother Neal, Blackman, Fisher and Toepel, Gaylord, Miss Estill.
