First Band Concert of the Year, 1923

From the May 31, 1923 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

First Concert.
The first band concert was given by the Skidmore band last Friday night. The notice of the concert was rather short but a good many were out to enjoy the music. The lights on the band stand were not in working order and the boys stood in front of Barrett’s store and played several selected pieces. The lights on the band stand were fixed the fore part of the week and were in working order for the concert last night. Most all of the town people and a good many cars from the country were out last night to hear the concert.

The night for the weekly concerts has been changed from Wednesday to Thursday night. Remember that the concerts will be given on Thursday night of each week, unless changed for some special occasion.
