The top stories in the Norealk Evening Herald on this date in 1902:
Resignation of Rev. C.A. Aves as pastor of St. Paul’s Church considered
The vestry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church met last evening to consider the resignation of Rev. C.S. Aves. A committee, consisting of R.K. Rood, Thodore Williams and John Gardiner was appointed to draft suitable resolution and an adjournment was taken to Friday at 4 p.m. to take final action.
The vestry will probably arrange to hear a few candidates, but they are conservative and will make haste slowly. They realize fully that it will not be an easy task to secure a successor to the pastor whem they have learned to love and revere.
School will not open until one week from Monday
The Board of Education met last evening and resolved to postpone the opening of school until Sept. 8. Meanwhile, they urge that all parents whose children should enter school, secure their certificates of vaccinations. The line will be strictly drawn and all pupils must show a physician’s certificate of v accination within the past two years or they will not be admitted. Those who have recently moved to town should secure such certificates from their former physicians or be re-vaccinated here.
The board also engaged C.V. Malmede, an employe of the A.B. Chase Co., to fresco the interior of the assembly hall, at a contract price of $96. The work is to be done partly in oil and partly in water color. The rear of the stage was not included in the estimate but will be included in the finished work, makign the expense somewhat more than the amount stated above.
Miss Maude Lawrence, instructor in drawing, was granted a weekly leave of absence of one day which she will probably devote to instruction int he Fremont schools.
There will be no change in text books this year except that made at the last meeting: Gage’s physics in the high school will be replaced by Wentworth & Hill’s.
