Faber Pencil Company Employes' Aid Society
20 May 1906
Brooklyn Standard Union
EMPLOYES' ASSOCIATION AND ITS ORGANIZER
One of the largest employes' associations in Greepoint is the Faber Pencil
Company Employes' Aid Society. Its object is to help members in case of
sickness, defraying all the expenses of medical attendance and pharmacy
bills. Meetings are held every two weeks in Germania Hall, and the members
are given a chance to spend a social evening among themselves. On various
evenings lectures are held, and several classes have been formed to discuss
social and economic questions.
Peter PETERS, the president of the association in speaking of the society,
said: "In my opinion the society wields an inconceivable amount of good
to the members, both in a social and literary way. At the meetings held in
Germania Hall, books of fiction, science, and history are distributed and the
members are afforded a good chance to educate themselves. A strong
feeling of friendliness is developed among the members and they all work
for the common good."
Only those who are employed by the Faber Company are eligible to member-
ship, and as soon as an employe severs his connection with the firm he
leaves the society. The membership fee is ten cents per week -- within the
reach of all. The recent report of the financial committee showed that the
society was in good standing.
On July 21 the society will hold a picnic at Washington Park. Frederick G.
HUBER, through whose efforts the society was organized, will have charge
of the arrangements, and he says that from present indications it promises
to be a great success.
The officers of the society are:
Peter PETERS, president;
Louis NELTZHAMMER, vice-president;
J. R. FOSTER, secretary;
