PEEK into the PAST: Pictured is a Dover Bulletin (published monthly) from April of 1923 in which the Dover Chamber of Commerce is planning to bring in more members. Click on the image to enlarge.

"With entirely an unselfish motive, the Directors and members have attempted to carry out its tasks and in most instances have succeeded. There yet remains, however, much which can and should be done. These tasks are not for the individual but are those which must be assumed by many working together. The more to work, the greater the possibility of accomplishment."
