Long before the Internet and email, invitations to meetings and events were often made by mail. In 1951 the cost to send a postcard was 2 cents.
The Ladies' Auxillary, Branch 328 (later named the James E. Clarke, Br. 328, Northbrook in honour of its founder) was mailed this meeting notice by Cathy Rosenplot (wife of Paul Rosenplot) of Northbrook.
Mary Lloyd Johnson kept many photos and documents to preserve local history. Her collection includes several postcards of meetings.
