Edith Torrey’s Social

The Skidmore newspaper reported on many successful parties over the years. Here’s one from September 29, 1899.

Social

Tuesday evening was made one of merry making at the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. L. N. Torrey, east of town. Miss Edith entertained a number of her friends so delightfully that the occasion is very happliy remembered by all who were present. The young men were given the task of trimming hats for the young ladies. It was great fun and the hats “looked funny” when they were finished. Then there was an apple peeling contest, followed with music and refreshments. A prize was awarded for the best trimmed hat and also for one to the couple that finished their apples first. Those present were Misses Laura Ashbrook, Anna Medsker, Mina Porter, Floy and Irene Dodds, and Messrs. James Lawson, A. C. and A. L. Dodds, E. A. Miller and the writer.
