During the noon hour all will join in a basket dinner. All are
requested to bring their dinners with them and join the entire as
semblage of friends and have an old-fashioned dinner. We trust all
will remember to bring their basket so that the burden of supplying
the dinner will be passed around. Some complaint has been made
about those coming without bringing their dinner. This forces only a.
lew to supply the necessary things needed. Let eaeh one not forget
to do his part in this feature of the meeting so much, enjoyed by all
School districts No. 3 and No. 32 have been invited to furnish this
part cf the program."
Our regular annual gathering of friends of our public school,
for this section of the county, is set on the above date. These annual
ed cational gatherings are now looked forward to by our parents and
sell jol children with much pleasure. The benefit of them is seen in
ths results of the same and the intense interest displayed by every
one. We find it is not necessary, as it once was, to urge our friends
of the public school to come out. It is now the pressing problem,
how to house the large numbers attending. We trust you will come
even should you feel that perhaps you will have to stand. Remem
bir the hoar of beginning, for we will begin promptly in order to
ci jie the meeting so that all may return to their homes in time to do
the evcuiag chores before night. Come with your family and dinner.
