The annual meeting of the Millburn Mutual Fire Insurance company was held at Millburn last Saturday afternoon. The usual routine of business was in order and the officers elected for the coming year was as follows: President-John Bonner. Secretary-J. S. Denman. Treasurer-Harold Minto. Directors-Ernest Davis, Geo. McCullough and David White.
At this meeting John A. Thain, who has served the company as secretary for the past twenty-five years, made known the fact that he was no longer a candidate for the position and J. S. Denman was chosen as his successor. During the time that Mr. Thain has been secretary, the company under his direction, and the able assistance of the other officers has grown to be one of the leading mutual fire insurance companies of the state. He has worked hard for the company and its advancement and policies signed by other than John A. Thain will have a strange and unfamiliar appearance. In retireing Mr. Thain, has the knowledge that he has served long, faithfully and well and what is more he also has the knowledge that his work has been fully appreciated.
Mr. Denman, the new secretary, is a progressive young man, fully capable of handling the task he has undertaken and no doubt will be the means of leading the company to even greater achievements in the future than has been accomplished in the past. Should it so happen that his term of office may also number twenty-five years we predict that he will be able to look back over a record as clear and full of satisfaction as that of his predecessor.
Another unusual feature of this meeting is the fact that no change whatever was made in the by-laws. As a usual thing some change is made each year, even though it be but slight, but this year no change whatever was suggested.
