Americanism Chairwoman Nancy Chase reminded members to fly their flags on Oct. 9 for Columbus Day and on the 27 for Navy Day. She read an excerpt from the Jan. 14, 1969, Red Skelton Hour called “Pledge of Allegiance” to the members. A flag-folding ceremony was performed at the Wilton Historical Society on Oct. 12.

Lois Barker, chairwoman for drug awareness, gave out special pencils and rulers to members to be handed out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween. A report was given on the Elks and Emblem food booth at Farmington Fair by Chairwoman Sylvia Richards. She thanked all the members who helped during that week.

Peggy Alexander, in charge of the Nov. 4 and Dec. 2 craft fairs, asked members to start preparing their crafts and plan what they will bake for the fairs. Literacy Chairwoman Diana Oliver donated eight Farmington Emblem Club labeled paperback books in October. The mystery gift was won by Betty Houle and the 50-50 raffle by Stardom Barden.
