100 Years Ago: 1921

Wednesday evening Lewiston and Auburn society danced in aid of the CMG Hospital as it has been done for years — but with a difference. This year it was quite informal, not a dress suit to be seen, and very few formal evening gowns, altho many pretty frocks were worn. The Charity Ball was just a merry dancing  party. Everybody came for a good time — and had it. They danced until well past midnight  on a floor put in the best condition by Henry Frost and under a canopy of flags and banners to the enticing music  of Perry‘s ten-piece orchestra. At intermission they partaked of refreshments and enjoyed the artistic program arranged by the committee.

Frank Keene and Patrolman Richard Valcour were dispatched to the scene, spotted the animals in the Val View Drive area, but couldn’t catch them.
