100 Years Ago: Roslin Recruiting and Patriotic Meeting

The Intelligencer August 25, 1915 (page 2)

“Recruiting Meeting Held at Roslin. Inspiring Addresses—Goodly Sum Donated by the Red Cross Society. At Roslin last night a recruiting and patriotic meeting was held, which was largely attended by the residents of that locality. Mr. John Elliott of this city was chairman and filled the position in his usual affable and able manner. …

The addresses were of a high order and were most patriotic in sentiment. The sum of $125 was realized and this amount will be applied for Red Cross work. During the evening and after each address vocal selections were rendered, which were not only of a patriotic nature but most pleasing. The gathering was in every respect a success and will no doubt have a tendency to inspire recruiting.”
