Circle 3 Entertained

Circle No. 3 of Baptist Church entertained the entire W. M. S. Monday evening, having also our Methodist friends as guests. The occasion was a rare one indeed., full of jolly anticipation and mirth, showing the capable ability of Mrs. W. H. Harris, who had the program in charge. We extend our thanks to Bro. Moreland for his splendid talk especially in behalf of our boys and very earnestly do we express our appreciation to all members of Circle 3 for the delicious refreshments served and we voted a rising thanks to invite Circle 3 to entertain again in the near future.
