ACTIVITIES.

Company A hold drills twice every week with a very good attendance until the time of the signing of the Armistice. Battalion drills were held in Ellis Wakeeney and Hays City, and in each case our company turned out the largest representation. The organization also attended the battalion drill at the Rooks county fair held at Stockton.

Members of the company took a very active part in all war activities, and turned out well to public celebrations of all kinds, in connection with Red Cross, War Saving Stamps, Liberty loans, Memorial Day services, Fourth of July, Home Coming and Armistice day celebrations.

A firing squad from this company has always been present at all funerals of Grand Army of the Republic veterans, members of the guard, and late war soldiers.
