The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 14 March 1924 (Page 2)


MILTON, N. C., March 13 (1924) - On Tuesday afternoon the Music and Dramatic Club of Milton met at the home of Mrs. Walter Lea Thomas, Jr. After the business meeting a very entertaining program was rendered commemorating St. Patrick, including a study of the life of St. Patrick, by Mrs. Thomas. A beautiful Irish song, "When I Dream of Old Erin," was sung by Mrs. R. C. Morris; piano solo, "Irish Medley," was rendered by Miss Miriam Baldwin, followed by a solo "My Wild Irish Rose," by Miss Graves Satterfield. "Where the River Shannon Flows" was sung by the entire club. A very amusing art contest was held, the prize being won by Miss Maybelle Gilbreath. "Introducing Pat," caused much merriment, Mrs. L. B. Hurley winning the prize. Delightful refreshments were served and dainty St. Patrick favors given. At the close of the program little Miss Mary Kerr Motz, attractively dressed in a costume of St. Patrick's Day, entered, bringing with her a wagon load of shower gifts, showering two of the club members. The recipients being Mrs. J. T. Bradsher and Mrs. R. C. Morris, both of whom are leaving Milton. Mrs. Bradsher will leave Friday for Oakridge, Colorado, where she will join her husband. Mrs. Morris expects to leave soon for Bluefield, West Virginia, to make her home in the future.
