At a consistory meeting of the First Reformed Church, Elder Labots was chosen as chair in place of the pastor, Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte who was still out East. It was reported that the building previously used as the church has collapsed. A non-member wanted the ruins but was refused. Instead, the building is to be dismantled and materials sold to the highest bidder. Members are to be assessed $875 for the minister's salary.
