Picnic Friday Night- Lions and Civic Clubs
The joint picnic of the Lions and Civic Clubs Friday night promises to be very enjoyable to the members of both clubs. The ladies will serve the eats and the Lions will furnish the program. The fun begins about 6 o’clock and will continue as long as the folks are able to enjoy it.
At the Tuesday luncheon the outgoing officers made their final reports and left a clean slate for the new administration which goes into office next Tuesday night. At this time the Lions will have a Ladies night and this will take the place of a noonday luncheon. A fine program of speeches, food, and fellowship is promised.
The Civic Committee reported an abatement of the nuisance of irresponsible people using the park for other than park purposes and the city marshal has had a good effect upon this work. Why some people should want to abuse the privilege of the park is beyond the understanding of most people. The park is for the pleasure of the people and those who use it are expected to keep it clean and not scatter trash nor graze cows and horses in it, neither is the shower bath to be misused.
Since there would be no meeting July Fourth, the Declaration of Independence was read to the Club. People sometimes are prone to forget the great things our Fathers did for the good of the country. It is well to be reminded once in a while that things always were not as well as they are now.
