The Girl Reserves had their annual ‘Mother and Daughter’ banquet last Friday evening in the high school library. Of course it is needless to say that the food was grand and the program was enjoyed by everyone. The toastmaster, for the second successive year, was Miss Lutie W. Adams. The program was as follows: Song, “ Put On Your Old Gray Bonnet”-All. Welcome to Mothers, Pearl Welch. Response, Mrs. Cann Bentley. Bright Savings of Bright Babies, Mrs. S. E. Adams. The Sort of Girl That Mother Used to Be (musical reading) Frances Fields. Special Music, Juanita and Roberta Whitaker. Headgear of Famous Women, Coleen Elliot and Norma Wright. Yes, My Darling Daughter, Groups and All Mother. Song, “Ain’t We Had Fun,”-All. Congratulations to Miss Irene Harvath, Girl Reserve Sponsor, for her tireless efforts in making this banquet such a wonderful success.
