Washington Birthday Party, 1921

From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), February 24, 1921:

Washington Birthday Party.
The King’s Daughters Class of the Christian Sunday School was delightfully entertained Tuesday afternoon by their teacher, Mrs. McClellan, assisted by the social committee of the class, at the parsonage.
The house was very tastefully decorated in red, white, and blue. The archway between the living room and dining room was draped with the colors, and tiny red, white and blue electric lights were strung across the archway.

The rooms were darkened, and as each guest entered, she met with a surprise; for there sat George and Martha, arrayed in the costumes of “ye olden days.” As soon as they recovered from their surprise, they were introduced to the former president and his wife by the hostess.

Many games were played, in which flags and hatchets were conspicuous. Several good readings were given, and one in particular, composed and read by Mrs. J. E. Pierpoint, occasioned considerable hilarity.

Dainty refreshments were served by the hostess.

Fifteen members were present, the condition of the weather preventing many of those living in the country from coming.
