SECRETARY'S REPORT.
can be visited and inspected.
On September 12th, 1908, we had another meeting and in-
vited all the Farmers selected by the appointed Committee
to meet with us and every one present pledged himself to
work faithfully for the good of the Association.
On November the 9th we petitioned the Honorable County
Board to grant us the use of the Court Roomn and on Novem-
ber the 12th we had a good meeting. Almost every member
of the County Board was present beside some outside Farmers
and again all promised to use their influence in behalf of our
Association.
February the 7th, '09, we held again meeting to get ready
for our next Convention. Monroe, Wis., was agreed on to
be the place for our next Convention. The date shall be
March 11th and 12th, 1909, at the Turner Hall. On account
of the 10 days free Course at the Agriculture College at
Madison and the 3 different Farmers' Institute in our direct
neighborhood we could not set an earlier date.  It was
agreed to have a suitable Watch Fob instead of a Badge for
each member; also to engage again Mrs. Wegg's celebrated
Badger Girls Orchestra which gave such splendid satisfaction
last year, to print Circulars setting forth the reason why we
should have the help of every Dairyman and Cheesemaker
and to send such Circulars to every Farmer selected by
aforesaid Committee for distribution; also to give an Invita-
tion to the different Advertisers in the 1909 Program of the
Wisconsin Cheesemakers' Association.  A Program  was
lined out and the Secretary was instructed to try and get the
different Speakers.
In conclusion and in the name of the Association I wish
to heartily thank every one who so freely and splendidly
assisted us in making this Convention a success.
HENRY ELMER, Secretary.
