PIONEERS GATHER FOR
TENTH ANNUAL REUNION
For the pist 10 years old timer»
of Cascade lax ks have gathered
for an annual reunion on the first
Sunday in August. Last Sunday
the pioneers came from far ami

large as anticipated, due to the
fact that records in the ¡Mtvsession
of Secretary Frank Hall burned in
the fire of July 2 and notices could
not be mailed to members of the
I'rincipal sjteaker was Judge J.
O. Stearns, of Portland. Music
was provided by Mrs. Fawin Br*»l-

and Miss Fay Sundy. Nell Rae
