100 Years Ago: 1924

A very pretty leap year dancing party arranged by Mrs. Ralph G. Haskell, Mrs. Charles Corey, Mrs. Bernard Haskell and Miss Dorothy Macomber was held at the Stevens Mills Grange Hall last evening. Forty-two couples attended and music was furnished by Perry’s Orchestra.

The hall was attractively decorated, the color scheme being red and white. This was carried out very effectively at the refreshment booth where shamrocks were used with other colors.

The dance orders of green and white with shamrocks were handmade and of an artistic design. There were 14 dance numbers and two favor dances, the favors being passed by two prettily costumed young ladies, Miss Methyl Crockett and Miss Priscilla Cunliffe.
