In a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, it was noted that the July 17 meeting was not held due to insufficient number of members present. A report on church finances was presented. A committee reported that the painting of the church was contracted for $125.00. The paint was supplied the contractors through the efforts of Plugger. New members were received. Repairs and maintenance of the orphanage became the responsibility of four consistory men.
