|"We had a fine time at this party and all enjoyed ourselves to the fullest extent."|
A very pleasing dinner party took place last night at Hotel Del Monte in honor of the sixteenth birthday of Miss Margarte Wright, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Wright of this city. All of the young guests were friends and classmates of Miss Wright and ranging between the ages of sixteen and eighteen years. The table which seated fourteen, was tastefully decorated for the occasion. Those present were Miss Mary Salterbach, Miss Hallie Hitchcock, Miss Effie Frenda, Miss Aileen Griffiths, Miss Helen Otis, Miss Eleanor Philps, Miss Tersita Johnson, Miss Alice Hilby, Miss Loraine Gunzendorfer, Miss Margaret Wright, Mr. and Mrs. M.W. McMen... and Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Wright.
Good thing I knew this was grandma since her name isn't very clear!
Loraine included the coat of arms at the Del Monte.
And there were more parties.
|Margaret, Helen, Hallie, Eleanor, Mary, Terry and I were invited to supper at Elfie's Sunday night -|
Sept 20/14. Afterward some of the boys came up and we "ragged".
Hmmm, wonder what "ragged" meant in 1914? A slang expression?
This is a cute placecard. She wrote that it was given at a "little luncheon Helen Otis gave in January". The cut-out in the dark purple is L G (backwards), her initials.
And Grandma turns 18!
|There is a miss named Loraine|
To her eighteenth birthday just came
To tell any more
would to all be a bore
And when Earle left it gave her a pain
