Taunton Poultry Protective Association, 1931, Founder's Message

To the Members of Taunton Poultry Association:

In the year 1921, there was a lot of poultry stolen in and about Taunton. As I felt the need of co-operation in poultry affairs, I took it upon myself to call a meeting, and out of that meeting was born the Associaton that I have always been proud of.

I was enthusiastic in those days, but it was the co-operation and loyal support of the members, and the tower of strength that came from the Bristol County Agricultural School, that put the thing over. I think the meetings that mostly appealed to me, were those where the members brought their problems and received the mutual help and co-operation of the members in solving them.

I think our guiding star should continue to be what our name implies in its broadest sense —mutual protection. If we do that, the Association surely will prosper and I am sure that you will all strive to carry out that policy and that I shall continue to be proud of the Taunton Poultry Protective Association.

IRA MURDOCK,

Our First President.
