The Grand opening dance in the new hall here Saturday was a record breaking crowd that will stand for some time.  There was 294 tickets sold for this dance, and a nicer and more sociable crowd would be hard to find.  Everybody out for a good time and not a thing occured to mar the pleasure of the evening.  The night could not have keen [sic] been if made to order.  While the hall was not complete, the hard maple floor was down, and the crowd was satisfied.  By the time for the Thanksgiving dance on December 2nd, the hall will be complete and dining room running in good shape to accommodate all.
