(Above) Toastmaster Robert A. Jones, Public Relations director of the Middle Atlantic Lumbermen's Association, was awarded a prize for acting as master of ceremonies. His dinner partners were the firm's co-owners in company with their wives. Left, Mr. and Mrs. Charles D. Hummer and right, Mr. and Mrs. John Green.

The Lumber, Plumbinq and Hardware Company, one of Chester's building materials merchants, recently commemorated their tenth anniversary with a banquet at the Chester Club for the firm's employees and guests. Talent, furnished by show-minded volunteers from the lumber yards, set a gay pace for the floor show entertainment. Invited to a place of honor and receiver of an award was the Company's first customer who on September 30, 1930 walked into the office and purchased $3.70 worth of lumber.


(Below) Among the celebration well wishers were (left to right) Ernest Manders, James Ashburner, Wilmer Jump and Charles Higgins (back to camera).
