A slide show was presented along with newspaper articles of world events during the celebration. The big event was the death of President Hindenburg of Germany with Chancellor Adolf Hitler taking the reins. A newspaper article dated Aug. 6, 1934 reported "Hitler declares he is against war." Besides the world news, Emaus had thousands of people come to town to celebrate 75 years. After the slide show, the attendees were treated to a surprise. The Society acquired the original 1909 golden anniversary quilt
