Immortal Lambs

The Lambs’ Council approved the following in 1933:

Time, with its chain of changes, dims the memory. Older members know and younger members should know the names of Lambs, who by their benevolence or loyal service, made it possible for the club to survive many a crisis. To honor those who have so honored us the Council unanimously adopted the following resolution:

RESOLVED That The Lambs, at each annual meeting, perpetuate the memory of deceased members who, by their benevolence or devotion to service, made it possible for the club to survive.
