Administrative history

The Starr's Point Temperance Society was based in the Starr Point School District #357, and the R.M. of South Qu'Appelle No. 157. In May 1896 president of the society, Mr. Bray reported 37 names in the pledge book. Regular monthly meetings were held at which time "the pledge" was circulated. The pledge was a promise to abstain from the use of all intoxicating liquors and tobacco. The programme of each meeting consisted of hymn singing, readings, recitations, debates, and sometimes guest speakers. Occasionally special concerts were held.
