Scope and content

Two separate articles on the topic of flood relief funds.
"Holland Marsh Flood Relief Fund
On Sunday a Holland Marsh Flood relief Fund was organized, with "Brad" Walker as chairman.
Money is needed immediately. Many of the flood refugees are homeless. Their homes and everything in them are lost. Their crops, which are their livelihood, are lost.
Send cheques, payable to the Holland Marsh Flood Relief Fund, addressed to the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Bradford. Cash donations will also be accepted at the bank or at the town hall.
Remember - All cheques should be made payable to Holland Marsh Flood Relief Fund."

"Hurricane Relief Fund Makes First Contribution of $150,000
The Hurricane Relief Fund for Ontario has made its first contribution to the Holland Marsh of $150,000/ This is for rehabilitation purposes.
Just as Premier Leslie Frost's pledge of $100,000 is just a start to get the great task on dikes and land on the marsh started, so too is the Relief Fund's $150.000 a start on rehabilitation."
