At a dinner meeting in Chester on June 18, members of the Delaware County Children's Aid Society celebrated its 35th anniversary. Honored guests were a number of the charter members of the Society, whose interest and support has continued to the present day.

The Executive Secretary, Miss Mildred H. V. Showalter, reported that a total of 82 children were under care by the Society during 1941, and that a total of 2275 visits were made on their behalf.

An interesting feature of the evening was the reading of a history, "Through the years: 1906-1942", compiled by Mrs. John Wills and presented by Miss Jean Peoples.
