Administrative history

The Ladies' Aid Society of Central Presbyterian Church in LaHave, Nova Scotia met monthly in the homes of its members. They raised money through membership dues and events such as bake sales in order to fund the Sunday School and pay the church organist, as well as to support charitable endeavours such as the Red Cross Society. From 1918 to 1925 their membership was between seventeen to twenty women, but by 1927 it had dipped to only eight. They elected a president, treasurer, and secretary from among their ranks.
