Perry Club Entertained
Easily the most gorgeous affair of the season in Caddo society was the entertainment of the Perry Music Club of Durant by the Thursday Musicale Club of Caddo last Tuesday evening, Washington’s birthday. The members of the Perry club who attended the reception, Mesdames Haden, Parker, Johnson, Hilton, McKinney, Hunter, Nicholson, Kendall, and Misses Woody and Gooding, were met at the depot by the members of the Thursday Musicale, and after a delightful carriage ride over the city the guests were driven to the Williams House where a delightful six o’clock dinner was served. It is unnecessary for us to expatiate at length upon the dinner for Mrs. Williams is well known for her splendidly appointed dinners and this one is no exception; the dining room was appropriately decorated in white and gold, the Club colors.
The visiting club ladies were then entertained at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Dunlap on West Buffalo Street. Upon entering the reception hall which was tastily decorated, the guests were met by Mrs. Edwards and Miss Cobb, they were then ushered into the cloak room by Miss Neva Ray, thence into the library which was handsomely decorated where they were received by members of the Thursday Musicale. In the receiving line were Mesdames Dunlap, A. F. Manning, A.K. Bass, and H. W. Wells, each dressed in colonial costume. It was in this room that the splendid program which the Thursday Musicale had prepared for the occasion was rendered and each number was a gem. The program follows:
Address of welcome- Miss Cobb
Piano duet- Mrs. Rappollee and Miss Allen
Vocal solo- Mrs. Tanner
Piano solo- Miss Allen
Vocal solo- Mrs. Manning
The guests were then ushered into the dining room which was decorated with club colors and cut flowers, where they were served with delicious orange ice and cake by Misses Lillie Maytubby and Grace Dunlap.
During the entire evening strains of the sweetest orchestral music furnished by an orchestra from Sherman which was secreted in the hall, was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
After the reception at the Dunlap home the visiting ladies were escorted to the McCoy hall where a delightful dance was given in their honor by the young men of Caddo. The hall was decorated in the national colors and with pictures of George Washington. Punch was served at the hall by Misses Neva Ray, Mattox, and Malone.
The Woman’s Club met with Miss Wallace last Saturday afternoon. There was a large attendance. It being the day for election of officers, there was no program, but it was a very interesting meeting nevertheless.
