Hendersonville Draft Board To Close Shop by End of Month, March, 1919

From the French Broad Hustler, Hendersonville, N.C., March 13, 1919

Local Board to Close

The Local Board of Henderson County, in common with all local boards of the state, has received notice from the office of the Adjutant General to make preparation to shop all records at once, to sell board property not later than March 27th, and to be in readiness to close the board office finally by March 31st

No doubt the final release from all responsibility in connection with the draft will come as a very welcome relief to the members of the board. The board work has entailed a tremendous responsibility and a vast amount of hard work upon three men who were already busy citizens. The work of the Henderson County Board has been handled with justice, energy and care, and has been fortunate enough to receive special commendation from headquarters. The members of the board are C.E. Brooks, Chairman; J. Mack Rhodes, Secretary; Dr. J.S. Brown, Examining Physician; and Chief Clerk C.N. Wrenshall.
