MEDFORD INVITED TO GRANTS PASS
The Grants Pass chamber of commerce has extended an invitation to the Medford commercial club to send a delegation to one of the weekly noon-day luncheons held by the Grants Pass organization. These meetings are in the nature of a get-together for the business men of the city and according to Ben Sheldon, secretary of the chamber, have resulted in materially helping the civic spirit and work of the city.
Following the "Medford Day" affair members of the Ashland commercial club will be asked to participate in a similar affair.
In case a delegation attends the luncheon at Grants Pass, a return invitation will be extended to that body to enjoy a similar affair in this city.
