Followup: This town never fails to respond

The extraordinary tradition of Giving, The Adair County Way, has a long, long history of coming to the aid of those in need. A story carried yesterday, April 15, 2013, only told about two thirds of the final impact.


A quick followup:

An article in the April 9, 1913 News reported that in addition to the original sum raised on the evening of March 30th for relief in the flood stricken states, more donations came in on Monday morning, March 31, swelling the amount sent to Red Cross to $131.87. On top of that, Columbia Lodge No. 230 of the I.O.O.F. raised $10.50 for the cause, bringing the overall total to $142.37, equal in buying power to approximately $3,250 in today's dollars. - JIM
