Review of Year
Organized at the commencement of the soccer season, the club's activities have been varied. It has been the mans of providing a closer association between players and fans throughout the season. Its social activities commenced with a dinner given to the players at the Parish House of the Church of the Nativity near the close of 1926. Following this, it held a successful minstrel and dance, which drew capacity houses on two nights. It had a large share in the festivities attendant upon the recent visit of the Hakoah team and did its share toward drawing the largest crowd of the season at that game.
It has approximately $300 in its coffers to be donated to the new swimming pool, plans for which it is understood are now being drawn up. It disposed of a Dodge sedan recently, the machine having been donated by W. Luther Lewis. Everything considered, therefore, Tuesday's affair should prove a fitting climax to a strenuous season. A still better career may be anticipated for next year.
The committee in charge of the event is composed of Harry Bennett, chairman; Eugene Collins and Robert McCurley. The Booster Club has found that its greatest successes have been enjoyed by employing small committees and with that in mind , and the caliber of the men comprising the committee, no fears are being held for the success of the evening.
