' Golden Rule Sunday is most ap­ propriately placed midway between Thanksgiving\ and Christmas. Its purpose is two-fold: To awaken us to a greater appreciation of our own blessings, and emphasize our respon­ sibility to the less fortunate in all parts of the world. The central idea,of the day's ob­ servance is the substitution of a sim­ ple and .meagre \orphanage\ meal in place of our usual bountiful Sunday dinner. In doing this the plight of the destitute in the world's poorest lands is made more real to us and to our children. In our own community it is es­ pecially fitting that this Golden Rule /Sunday be seriously observed. The canvass for the COMMUNITY CHEST will be made on this day and a proper observance of the ideals of the day and a personal appreciation of our obligation to the worthy and needy objects of our community should prompt us to make liberal contributions or subscriptions to the FUND. Sincerely yours, (Signed) D. C. Bentley, Village President > ...fc
