Title The Trays
Description sustain me and bring me appreciation and pride for a great man's accomplishments. FIRST PUCE P3E3OML RECOLLECTION THE TRAYS Hal Edwards P.O. Box 54 Richfield, Utah 84701 I can't remember before The Trays* When I saw The Trays in our home, there was an air of excitement for me, even though I seldom got to see just how they were used. The Trays were large, black, metal, oval-shaped, and were kept in an equally black cloth bag with a drawstring at one end. On the bag was embroidered, "Bonne Foi, 1919." I knew they had something to do with my mother's sewing club, and that when it was her turn to host the group of ladies, The Trays would be in our home for almost two weeks before. The 3onne Foi Club was organized in Gunnison right after VJorld War I. In those days it was chic to have French names for clubs and other organizations. I was told that the interpretation of the French name meant "good friends," I couldn't figure out why they didn't just embroider "Good Friends" on the cloth bag. To me, the club was nothing but a bunch of old women, about my mother's age. In reality, they were about 35 ox 40 years old, but to a pre-teenager, they were ancient. They met every other Wednesday at Members' homes, where they had a formal opening, and then sat around and sewed on personal itenis while they exchanged the activities of their families and did some bragging on their childrens' accomplishments. 86
