Varsity Club Gives Up
1957 Sports Banquet
Continued From Page 1, Section 1
The club will help formulate plans
and support the town recreation
officer in an effort to expand an-i
improve the summer recreational
program involving Midget Lea
guers, a softball league, and to at
tempt to provide more recreation
al facilities and activities for the
youth of the community.
In releasing to the press the
news the Varsity Club would not
stage its annual Sports Awards
Banquet this year, President Fry
said: “Club members were reluc
tant to cancel the banquet this year
and did so only after much delib
eration. We of the Varsity Club
are keenly aware of the need for
more recreational facilities and ac
tivities for the youth of our com
munity and are anxious to do what
we can to direct our time, talents
and funds to such a worthwhile
program. We are few in number, i
and our funds are limited, but wej
believe we can greatly assist the
program for our town, und-»r the
supervision of the Town Recrea
tional Officer. As for the banquet,
we do not intend to completely give
up this project, but have decided
to cancel it for this year.”
