The November executive meeting agreed to present wording for the cairn plaque:
"LLOYDTOWN – UPPER CANADA –TO THE MEMORY OF JESSE LLOYD AND THE OTHER EARLY PIONEERS OF LLOYDTOWN WHO THROUGH THEIR EFFORTS AND SACRIFICES IN THE REBELLION OF 1837 HELPED TO ESTABLISH RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT IN CANADA"for vote at the next general meeting.
An amendment to the Constitution was also proposed: "In the conduct of its affairs the King Township Historical Society declares it is non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-racial and shall be operated for the equal good of all citizens."
A committee to collect "the considerable historical data available in the Township" was suggested 4.
The November 9th general meeting followed through with a query to the provincial cemeteries authority regarding the Emmanuel Church; slight changes to the plaque wording were accepted and a committee to collect historical data was elected. Mr. Gray, local bookseller, described sources of Ontario history, gave tips for preserving books; a "bring and brag" (show and tell) artifacts display by members concluded the evening.
