Hickory Will Put Up Community Christmas Tree the Day After Christmas, 1916

“Community Tree Tuesday Night, Dec. 26,” from the Hickory Daily Record, December 18, 1916

With 156.50 already raised for the Christmas dinner, community Christmas tree and relief fund for the winter, Capt. D.G. Coy was hopeful today that the snow would have the effect of opening the purse-strings of Hickory public and increasing the total to over $300. He had hoped to Raise $500 before Christmas, and is confident that the public will respond liberally enough to make the amount nearly that much.

The Christmas tree will not be held next Monday night, as planned, but on Tuesday night, the change having been made in order to prevent conflict with church entertainments.
The amount raised Saturday was $149.50 and today Captain Coy reported $5 from Mr. A.S. Abernethy and $2 from Mrs. J.B. Johnson.
