Ethnic Fraternal Organization


Some McIntyre residents remember either a Slovak or Polish Fraternal Organization in town. Mutual aid fraternal organizations, such as this one, provided fellowship among males of the same nationality. For a small yearly fee, the organization also provided the cost of a burial for a member or his family and offered other welfare benefits. This photo, from the 1930s, is either from McIntyre or a neighboring town.
