Fundraising for the hospital, 1915

This major fundraising event for the hospital took place near the train depot on the northeast corner of Front Street and State Street in 1915. Competition was fierce among the many teams involved trying to reach a goal of $175,000, as stated on the large dial. Indeed, Memorial Hospital would open on Hayes land in 1918 thanks to a generous gift from Mary Miller Hayes. (Submitted by Larry Michaels and Krista Michaels)
