50 years ago today - 50 years ago - Jun 10, 1970

in a letter from the First Presidency to all stake, mission, branch, and district leaders, it explained that the Relief Society would not longer raise their own money, but that activities would be financed out of the [local] budgets. This meant that bazaars or other events to raise funds were discontinued, because the First Presidency stated that "the duty of fund-raising where it belongs, on the Priesthood."
