Todays “From the Vault Friday” features a certificate from the Canadian Red Cross Society certifying that the Spirit City School District “has been organized under the Junior Red Cross and under the warrant and authority of the Canadian Red Cross Society is entrusted with the responsibility of helping in the Peace-time Mission of the Red Cross: The Improvement of Health, the Prevention of Disease, and the Mitigation of Suffering throughout the World.” The document is dated September 1930, but re-enrollment seals attached to the document certify the school until 1937.

This item is from the Spirit River (Spirit City) School District 3361 fonds (fonds 235).
