The members of the Friday Club entertained their husbands and gentlemen friends Friday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Roberts. It was a “Surprise Party” to the gentlemen. A very pleasing program was rendered. Each member on the program was a surprise to the gentlemen, as each one afterward declared that had he known what was to follow, he might have done his part better. A committee, composed of Messrs. Brown, Hopkins and Austin, arranged a program for the next meeting. Refreshments were served, after which all joined in singing “Home, Sweet Home.”
