?pbding' Achievements of Farmville Organizations During the Current Year! MtaaifJIxpenditures of so varied and ;'?? wide * program, but it does act as y clearing ground for the various 14ms which arise relative to these various works. Many problems and affected with public inter est are thrashed out in the meetings of the Club long before they are put into tangible form. The Club makes no claims to greatness. It is a busi ness and professional club composed of business and professional men. Its aim is to serve Farmville in any way that it can. In view of the above the Farmville Rotary Club looks back on the year 1933-34 as one of progress and ser vice, not merely for itself and its re lations with Rotary International, but also for Farmville and the commu nity which it was organized to serve. Farmville is rapidly forging ahead and awakening to the possibilities of this new era in which we live. It is Rotary's hope and desire to in some small way point the way and direct the movement in order that the town and community of Farmville may be a cleaner, healthier, more friendly town in which we may all live and work. 1933-34 was a year of change and adjustment. That year is past, and with its passing the Farmville Ro tary Club turns its eyes on the hori zon of better times and taking its cue from the spirit, which has per vaded Farmville during the fall months of 1934, boldly faces the fu t ture with an undaunted confidence in the future of Farmville, and its ability to serve the community through the many means which it has at its command. American Legion The Farmville Post American Le gion No. 151, was organized on August 14th 1923 through the efforts of John Hill Paylor, E. H. Marrow, C. T. Marrow, and W. D. Dildy. The charter members were Edward W. May, B. L". Stokes, D. S. Barrett, T. H. Rouse, J. L. Harvey, William G. Hill, E. H. Marrow, W. J. Bundy, H. W. Turnage, W. D. Bryan, Jr., A. W. Bobbitt, Dewitt G. Allen, T. A. Smoot, Jr., W. D. Dildy, John Hill Paylor, and C. T. Marrow. John Hill Paylor was the first Post Command er, W. D. Dildy first Adjutant, and A. W. Bobbitt, first finance officer. The Farmville Post has had an in crease in membership each year, the membership for 1934 totalling 83. The goal for 1935 is 100 members. John Hill Paylor, the service officer has assisted in filing many claims and securing compensation and hos pitalization for the ex-service men. The Farmville Post has a fully equip ped hall, with no outstanding indebt edness. The Farmville Post caused to be organized and chartered on June 12th, 1930 The American Legion Auxiliary, which said organization has been one of the outstanding units in the State. Present officers are: O. G. Spell, Commander; C. S. McKeel mid J. H. Bynum, Vice Commanders; C. A. Ty son, finance officer and adjutant, John Hill Paylor, service officer, and also guardianship officer, Roy Moore, chaplain. Junior Order United American Mechanics Farmvilie Council, No. 141, was or ganized in December 1926, and has a present membership of fifty-eight, with the following officers in charge: E. F. Gaynor, councilor; Lath Mor riss, vice councilor; E. J. Barrett, Jr., past councilor; H. W. Kemp, finan cial sec'y-. and B. J. Skinner, record ing sec'y The order, of both local and na tional scope, having two national homes, is, at present, caring for about 1500 orphans of deceased brothers; a friend and staunch supporter of our Free Public School system, it is also a fraternal insurance order, carrying a funeral benefit, together with others. The members believe in, and advo cate the reading of the Bible and teaching it in the schools, together with the bearing of true allegiance to the flag of our country, and try to place one over each of our school houses. This is truly an American institu tion, as all applicants for member ship, must have been born in Amer ica, and be able to read and write, thus proving itself a foe to illiteracy. Modern Woodmen of America Farmville Camp, No. 15727, an brder of the modern fraternal insur ance type, has a membership of fifty-six, the individual carrying from ?500 to $5000. The present officers are: W. C. Wooten, consul, W. A. Barrett, adviser, B. J. Skinner, sec'y and banker. The outstanding feature of the order, is insurance without profit, which enables many to carry on in small installments. It has many other desirable features, which will be gladly explained by any member if approached. The local camp was organized about 1916 and at times has enjoyed prosperity along with other organiza tions, suffering reverses also, but is apparently, at the present time, mov ing on in an even tenor with the hope that this wave of prosperity will be enduring. Improved Order Red Men Ocklawaha Tribe, No. 47, has had a somewhat checkered career, organ ized in the early days of the order's existence, after a few years it dis banded, and a second attempt was later made to revive it, and for a few years was successful. On April 14, 1926, it was reorgan ized with 32 charter members, and today after many hardships boasts of about the same membership with the following officers, presiding over its destiny: B. S. Taylor, sachem; C. T. Butts, Sr. sagamore; Robert Moore, Jr. sagamore, B. J. Skinner, chief of records. This order is composed of local men, bound together in a brotherhood for the mutual uplift of the mem bers and the community in which they live, also carrying a small death benefit annuity.
