Highland View Social Whirl

The March 2, 1900 Skidmore Standard reported on page 1 that the social world of Skidmore had expanded into the new Highland View section of town:

Neighborly Club.

Last evening, Highland View made its entree into the social world of Skidmore.  Mrs. H. W. Montgomery and Miss Maude entertained the Neighborly Club in the elegant new Montgomery home.  The rooms are large, handsomely furnished and especially adapted for social gatherings.  The musical numbers of the program and the recitations were all good, and as a diversion, each gentleman present was required to trim a hat for his partner.  In this contest, J. M. Lawson was awarded the prize, a sterling silver key ring, and George Porter was given a half yard of red ribbon as a consolation favor.  The ladies wore their hats to the dining room where delectable refreshments were served.

Miss Dale Allen delighted the guests with two splendid recitations and vocal solos, and Miss Nelle Montgomery, with two piano solos.

Mr. Joseph Hoblitzell and wife and Mrs. Edward Pinkston, of Maitland, were among the guests.
