The club is to study citizenship and community interest, and work for the Red Cross. Membership is not
limited to suffragists, and anyone interested in the proposed line of study on the Red Cross is eligible, and

scrapbook at the Bancroft Library, Hopedale.
Since putting this page together, I've lost track of where I
got this very blurry photo of the plaque. Evidently at the
time I cropped out the Massachusetts section, from a
much better version than the one above, but now that
one is all I have of the entire thing. I didn't have any luck
searching online for it. If you have a better version of it,
I'd be very grateful if you'd send it to me at
There's a somewhat similar-looking one for New York
that turns up in searches, but not this one.
