Following this suitable speeches were made by Vice-President And. Holz and Treasurer Casp. J. Drescher. Both gave extensive details on the fine work done by the association. When the installation was complete and the association agenda was finished, those in attendance adjourned to the premises of Mr. Michael J. Fenzl, where a snack awaited them.
Members of the association gathered at a round party table where humor and joking prevailed. Mr. Fenzl set a fine table, which came from the kitchen of the wife of Mr. C.C. Drescher.
There was good food with plenty to drink and the meal was spiced up with many toasts and jokes, making the affair and thoroughly welcome and pleasant one. The participants gave thanks to the ladies who provided the meal, Mrs. Mary Drescher and her helpers. The ladies were reimbursed for the costs.
