Massachusetts Firemen’s Association.
The thirtieth convention of the Massachusetts State Firemen’s association will be held at Plymouth. Mass., during the month of September, 1909, and the board of directors must soon meet and lay its plans for the proceedings of that assembly. That this year’s program may prove of more interest and benefit than ever to all the firemen of the Old Bay State, they once more are asked to assist the committee by suggesting their views on whatever subject most especially appeals to them in the line of their work to be discussed at the convention. It is hoped that each member will take this up as a personal matter and aid the board of directors as soon as possible in furthering the success of the meeting, thereby rendering a service that will be of great value to the members of the board as well as the convention itself. Of course, no one need feel that, by answering this call for suggestions, he necessarily will be requested to deliver an essay on whatever subject be may suggest; but it is hoped that the subject alone, which can be utilised in a general way, will be of interest and greatly appreciated by the board. D. Arthur Burt, of Taunton, the secretary of the association, will be glad to receive such suggestions and to afford all information as to the association.
