Jane McGuire, Chapter President



The Christ Child Society Chapter of Boston, Massachusetts was founded in 1936.  In March of 1936 four ladies met in Cambridge, Massachusetts to sew a layette.  Mary Virginia Merrick had sent a box of cut-out garments to a former member of the Washington Chapter, Isabelle Haggerty, who had moved to Cambridge with a request that "she gathered a few friends together to sew for the Christ Child."  She gathered the first group together and others followed who were interested in making layettes and in 1936 the Boston, Massachusetts Christ Child Chapter was born.
