In Years Past

July 9, 2014

In 1914, a very successful lawn social was given Wednesday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Lowe on Lowe Avenue at Sherman's Bay by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Lakewood M.E. Church for the benefit of the burned church. The lawn was prettily decorated for the occasion with Japanese lanterns, electric lights and flags. During the evening, ice cream and cake were served at tables placed upon the lawn underneath the evergreen trees. A fish pond was run during the evening and homemade candy was sold at a stand by the Epworth league of the church. During the evening, the South Side Orchestra of Jamestown, stationed on the verandah of the home, played pleasing music.
