MAY MARKET CLEARS $3000 for FUND

From The Delaware County Advocate - June 1942

A sprinkle of traditional rain merely added zest to the 21st Annual May Market held May 21 on the grounds of Chester Hospital. Crowds of patrons surrounded the different booths hoping to qualify for the tempting prizes: war bonds, a suckling pig, a full dress outfit and a drum of gasoline. The Sun Ship band furnished music for the evening crowds.

A CORRECTION (In July issue of the Advocate)
Chester Hospital "In the June issue of the Advocate you mention that $3000 had been collected by the May Market committee of Chester Hospital. At Mrs. MacFarlane's request, I ask that you announce in your next issue that the final receipts from the May Market Festival were $9,095.38 and that the three thousand dollars mentioned last month covered only partial returns.
Very truly yours, 
L. P. Wray, Superintendent." 

From The Delaware County Advocate - June 1942
Thanks to Harvey Martin!
