65 years ago today - Nov 18, 1947

Report on special fast day-- Church Archives, Salt Lake City, Utah.

A follow-up letter to the announcement of October 30, 1947, of a special fast day for the relief of sufferers from the war in Europe. The wards were to still retain that portion of the fast day funds normally collected during the month of December, using December, 1946, as the model. The Church would then make up from general tithing funds the amount thus retained by the wards and the full amount collected on this special fast day would be sent from Church headquarters "to the appropriate agency distributing general relief in Europe."
