Support the League of Nations on Armistice Day

Internationalism and the new League of Nations were hoped to prevent any future wars.

21st October, 1919

A letter was read from the Chairman of The League of Nations Union, dated 14th October, 1919, suggesting that Nov. 11th, the anniversary of Armistice Day, be celebrated in every city, town and village as League of Nations Day, and that an appeal for funds to support the League of Nations be made in connection with this celebration, and he enclosed an outline of the scheme, including a few suggestions.

On the motion of the Chairman, it was decided to postpone consideration of this matter until the next meeting.

On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr Rasey, the Clerk was instructed to procure copies of the letter and literature and to forward same to the Chairmen of the Parish Councils within this Rural District.
