The file consists of a letter from the Gleichen District Association inviting the Namaka U.F.A. Local No. 122 to participate in a field crop competition; and a rough draft of minutes of the meeting of February 1935.
The fonds consists of minute books, with membership and financial records, and one letter.
Namaka Farmers Union No. 122 had its organizational meeting on December 29, 1909 at Namaka, a district east of Calgary, Alberta. It was a Local of the United Farmers of Alberta and its name was later styled Namaka U.F.A. Local No. 122. It was engaged in cooperative buying of twine. It was still active in 1935.
The fonds consists of the Society's newsletter for 1944 and 1947-1951.
In March 1944 a group of five UFA Co-op employees began publishing a monthly staff newsletter, provisionally titled You Name It?? By 1946 the newsletter was titled UFA Sco-ops, and it was the official organ of the U.F.A. Staff Co-op Society. Doug Thornton of the Educational Department of UFA Co-op served as its editor during most of its history. The Society organized social and recreational activities and produced the newsletter. In 1949 the Society's name was changed to U.F.A. Co-op Staff Society and the newsletter's title was changed to Sco-ops. In 1951 the Society disbanded and the newsletter ceased publication. A later staff social and recreational association known as ECHO (Employees of the Co-op Head Office) existed from the 1970s onward.
The newsletters had been collected by Doug Thornton.
