Civic and Cemetery Club
The Civic Club held their regular meeting with Mrs. John Hogan Wednesday afternoon. After the reular business session Mrs. McCoy gave an excellent report of the district Federation meeting held recently in Durant. The subject for the afternoon was the “Home Beautiful”. Mrs. Nail, “What the Old South can Teach Us”; Mrs. Brewer, “Which Shall it Be, a House or a Home?”; Mrs. Hogan, “The Blue Room of the Soul”; Mrs. Robbins, “Home Life of Japanese Women”. Each one gave splendid papers on the subjects which were enjoyed very much.
The club discussion of the real ornaments of a home resulted in a unanimous verdict that children were the real ornament so the true home. The answer to roll call, “where do we hide the key” revealed many unique hiding places. A letter from the Durant Normal Quartet offering to entertain here was read. The club decided that owing to the revival of the Christian people they would ask a later date, for they would enjoy hearing them very much. The Club ws asked to observe “Mother’s Day” next Sunday by wearing a white flower and remembering in some kind way your own or another’s mother.
Mrs. Hogan, assisted by Mrs. Cobb and Miss Cobb, served delicious refreshments.
