Madison County Democrat — Mrs. Dan Truitt very pleasantly entertained the ladies of the Harmony Needle Club at her home last Thursday afternoon. After the regular program a lunch was served.
— The members of the Methodist Episcopal Church Sunday School will give an Easter entertainment at the church next Sunday evening. (The M.E. Church was located then on the site immediately beside the current Huntington Bank just to the east. It was built in 1862 and was replaced with the current one in 1922. Later the old building was remodeled and became the Orient Movie Theater. Your writer has the pump organ from the original church.)
— The members of the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society will meet at the home of Mrs. L C. Dick on Wednesday afternoon.
— The members of the Antioch Mission will give an Easter entertainment at the church on Sunday evening. (The Antioch Mission building later became the home for the Darby Grange.)
— We can offer no better evidence in proof of the fact that Wooltex coats and suits give complete satisfaction both in style, quality and service. Wooltex coats can be had for $12.50 to $25 and Wooltex suits $19.50 to $30.
The Madison Press, May 20, 1954 — The West Jefferson Firemen’s Club on Tuesday night honored Mr. and Mrs. John Kile at a bridal party and shower in the club room. Attending were Mr. and Mrs. Kile, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Salyers, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Ball, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Hockenbery, Mr. and Mrs. George Stickle, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Roberts, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Salyers, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Barton, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hockenbery, Mr. and Mrs. Gene Wetzel and Mr. and Mrs. Don Harris. It was an informal evening with light refreshments while the honored guests opened an array of miscellaneous gifts presented to them.
— Baccalaureate services Sunday night, May 23, will be the beginning of the end for 26 graduates of West Jefferson High School. Reverend Father Charles Webb of Sts. Simon and Jude Church, will deliver the address. Friday evening the members of the senior class will take their places with those who have “passed on” when they are honored at the annual banquet of the Alumni Association. (I remember Etta Chenos at the banquet, who I believe was celebrating her 50th year. I thought, “Wow, 50 years, she must be 100!” Next year is my 60th.)
— If the weather persists in keeping the temperature down, Ray Peterman, chairman of the committee of the Businessmen which is sponsoring the first dance “Under the Stars” on the blacktop Saturday night, says not to cancel the date, come right on, says Mr. Peterman, and we’ll dance in the gymnasium.
