Next business meeting - January 10, 2014

100 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH

December 3, 1914
It was reported that the Norwood police would be strictly enforcing the regulation forbidding subscription solicitation of magazines and other periodicals where advanced payment is required. Agents who collect money for subscriptions but then fail to deliver the periodicals appear to have been a problem back then.

December 7, 1914
The Highland Aerie No. 449, F. O. E., presented the first minstrel show at the Norwood Theater. The show was in three parts: "The Barbers' Social," a musical presentation; J. Hoffman's lady entertainers, and, for the closer, an olio.

Prof. O. J. Brooks gave a reading from the works of James Whitcomb Riley at a parent/teachers meeting at Sharpsburg School auditorium.
