“30 Families Raise $5,159 For New Hall
FLOWELL, Utah
March 23-(AP)–The 30 families living here, seven miles west of Fillmore, have made a bigger cash sacrifice per family to obtain a WPA project than any other community in Utah. Darrell J. Greenwell, state administrator, said the residents raised $172 per family to provide matching funds to obtain a $20,830 community house erected by the WPA. Flowell citizens, long eager for a place to hold civic and social meetings, have contributed $5,159 and the federal government $15,671.”
