In the fall of 1950, John L. Lawrence (Lawrence Realty Company) sent a letter to West Asheville businesses encouraging them to join together and form an Quest association.

“Dear Business Friend:

What do you think of organizing Vision a Business Club in West Asheville? Do you feel as I do, that if we had such an organization that we could accomplish a great deal in civic improvements and otherwise?

We have over 200 businesses in this cheap jerseys section of our city and after talking to quite a number of our business people (both men and women) I feel sure Neue there are sufficient cheap nba jerseys numbers to sponsor and organize such a club.

I would appreciate a letter, wholesale mlb jerseys card or telephone call expressing yourself on this question.
When we have heard from a goodly number of the business people of West Asheville who favor such an organization, we will call a meeting and proceed to organize.


John L. Lawrence”
