[. . .] Coun. E. R. Snow remarked that she had reports from all the Relief Societies which had been sent her when making up a report for the Centennial, that would be very useful to them in making up reports for the quarterly meeting of the Relief Society; she also stated that it had been considered proper to purchase wheat to store for Zion with the funds saved in the Woman’s Store and asked the sisters to vote upon the matter and it was unanimously carried. She spoke of that store having been started without any capital, and of the good results of the sisters’ labors there. Made many other happy remarks. [. . .] [p. 130]
