QUARTERLY NEWS LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
April 15, 1961
Since our last news letter a couple of months ago we have not had much news from the various societies and study groups. However, the two new societies -- Urantia Society of Santa Monica and the Orvonton Society of Chicago -- are making arrangements to be installed soon.
We have had the pleasure of several visitors in the past month, five from Oklahoma City, two from Urbana, Illinois, and eight from Elkhart, Indiana. All came to attend a regular meeting of the First Society and visit the Foundation and Brotherhood headquarters. They are all interested and enthusiastic about the Urantia Book. Rarely a Sunday passes but what we have a visitor, either from or out of Chicago. You are all cordially invited to visit the headquarters of the Urantia Brotherhood and we hope more and more of you will come when you can.
Miss Marian Rowley, Secretary-General of the Brotherhood, is going to California this month and is looking forward to meeting with the groups there. Upon her return she will no doubt have news for us as to their doings.
The last regular meeting of the First Urantia Society for the spring will be held on June 11, with a discussion of Paper 157, "At Caesarea-Philippi" by Harold Karrer. This Society will have its regular annual meeting on June 18. This year the picnic at Dr. Sadler's Pine Lodge will be held on Saturday, June 24. Please come and bring your friends.
And don't forget Jesus' birthday will be celebrated at 533 Diversey Parkway, on Monday, August 21, at 8 p.m.
Custodians report they steadily receive orders from book stores. So far this year 161 books have been sold through bookstores or directly to individuals. Urantia Brotherhood School text books are still available.
