The Connecticut Convention.
The eleventh annual convention of this Association will be held in the Opera House, in the city of Derby, on Wednesday and Thursday the 1st and 2nd of August, 1894.
The headquarters of the President and Secretary will be at the Bassett House, where the Executive Committee will hold a meeting at 10:30 A. M. on Wednesday the 1st and the convention will assemble in the Opera House, at 2 P. M , sharp and the delegates are requested to present their credentials to the Secretary, sign the roll and receive their badge—before the meeting, if possible.
The fire department and citizens of Derby, have made arrangements to receive their visitors in fine style, and will tender them a banquet on Wednesday evening.
On Thursday morning, previous to the assembling of the convention, a couple of hours will be devoted to exhibitors.
The outlook promises one of the best conventions yet held by the Association and every fire department and company in the State should make an effort to be represented.
The annual dues of each department officer, one dollar; and of each company, two dollars, according to the by-laws must be paid on or before the first day of August in each year, in advance for the ensuing year, and a non-compliance with this by-law forfeits membership.
JOHN S. JONES,
Secretary C. S. E. A.
