The club adopted as its chief objective for 1924 the establishment of a municipal playground and athletic field We attended an Inter-Club Meeting at Alexandria.

The Kiwanis activity for the year 1924 in addition to work for cripples and underprivileged children was largely devoted to the attendance of its principal local object, the establishing of a playground for the children of the city.

Raised $3,000 at the indoor fair that was greatly aided by the co-operation of all the members, town business men as well as by a great many ladies of Fredericksburg As a result of this effort, this money was placed in the hands of a committee and later was used to complete the object.

The very hearty Support which the Kiwanis gave to the Harvest Festival contributed largely to the success of that festival and found that the people of Fredericksburg looked forward to that occasion as an annual function The Kiwanis Musical Revue was beautifully staged thanks to the activity of George M Davis, one of our most valued Kiwanians, and his musical friends, both ladies and gentlemen This revue added materially to the funds of the Kiwanis Club for the benefit of the above playground.

During the administration of Dr S L Scott on or about May 6th, 1924, the agitation of the Battlefield Park for Fredericksburg was continued Efforts were made upon various occasions to keep this T)roject alive and resulted in a bill ultimately being passed providing for proper inspections and surveys of the battlefields in and around Fredericksburg The year 1924 in addition to the incidents of its accomplishments, previously mentioned, was the year characterized by a great deal of interest in Kiwanis activities and furnished a splendid background for the support of efforts which came in the next administration.
