100 Years Ago: Patriotic Lawn Social Held

The Intelligencer June 15, 1915 (page 3)

“Patriotic Lawn Social. Last evening at the residence of Mrs. Aylesworth, 214 Church street, a successful lawn social was held under the auspices of the Cadet Blue Circle. A very pleasant evening was spent, the refreshment booths being liberally patronized.

Fresh flowers gave the beautiful lawn an added attractiveness, and aided by the brilliant Chinese lanterns, and the Fifteenth Regimental Band, made the evening one long to be remembered. Many thanks are due the band for donating the evening’s musical programme, and also to the ladies who did so much to make the social a success.”
