The Shadow Basket Picnic at the Center School House in Meadow twp. was largely attended in spite of the cold snap and recent scare of sickness. The program was not as large as had been planned, but was appreciated by the audience. “Dreams of Funny Land” was a very interesting feature of the evening, and caused a great deal of laughter among the young folks whom it concerned. Although there were only fourteen baskets, a neat little sum of eighteen dollars was realized. During the evening a fine phonograph concert was given by Bert Hasenkamp. George Sievers who is well known to the public as a musician, also proved to be an excellent auctioneer with Henry Krogman as clerk.
