With the reopening of the Thrift Shop in Guild Square today the Women’s Community Committee will begin its 38th year of service to the community.

The shop is stocked with now that things are getting bargains in used fall and winter clothing and household items gathered together throughout the summer months. All these excellent items have been donated by the townspeople. The co-chairmen, Mrs. Richard Nead, Mrs. Herbert Lindblom, and Mrs. George Mahoney, have spent many hours cleaning the shop and checking the stock for the new season.

Under the new policy of manning the shop with committee members, the shop will be open one day a week on Thursday from 10 to 4. This new arrangement has proved to be very satisfactory in the past, both to the customer and the working committee.

Pick-up calls on large items has been slow all summer, but back to normal and regular cleaning is in order, it is hoped the housewives will call the shop and send old furniture, lamps, books and usable items they no longer need. The shop will make pick-ups if those having items will call 762-2991.

For the past 37 years it has been the purpose of the Committee to stay informed as to the needs of the town and to help with community problems and cooperate with community movements. Over the years the Community Committee has contributed to the welfare of the town. The townspeople have shown their, constant support by their willingness to “Help Women’s Community Committee to Help Norwood.”
