Allen, Jennie Robinson, Maggie Grover and others; the Constitution of the organization formally called "The Young Ladies Mission Band of Tenant's Harbor Maine"; it's objective or more rightly their 'Mission Statement' which would be to "develop an interest in the cause of Missions to gain information on missionary subjects and raise money for prosecuting missionary work". According to its minutes, the group spent time researching missionary work, sewing, making patchwork quilts (presumably to give to the less fortunate), praying, singing, talking, 'having an entertainment' etc. This was often done at someone's home.
