    -The Ladies' Aid Society of the Methodist Church of Chandler was organized by Bessie Gilbert, last Thursday, when ten ladies became charter members. 

    The following officers were elected: President, Minnie Marsh; Vice President, Bessie Gilbert; Treasurer: Mrs. W.H. Stowe; Secretary, Estella Edwards.

    The purpose of the organization is to care for the sick and needy, to raise funs for the church, and to be of general usefullness on all occaisions.

    Any lady that is interested is cordially invited, and will pay a fee of one dollar which is the dues for one year.  The plan is to meet two or three times monthly at the home of one of the members.  Refreshments will be eliminated for now due to small spaces at some homes.

    The next meeting will be April 17th at the home of Mrs. Jordan.  (Chandler Arizonan 4/11/1913)
