Memorial Day in Skidmore, 1904

From the June 7, 1904 Skidmore New Era, page 1:

M. W. A. Memorial.

The Memorial exercises of the M. W. A., of Camp No. 3077 of this city Sunday afternoon, was well attended.  The members gathered at the hall, with the members of the Royal Neighbors, and marched in a body to the Masonic Cemetery where the graves of their dead brothers were decorated with flowers.  There was a large crowd present to witness the exercises at the cemetery, this being the first time that this camp has ever been called upon to act in memory of their dead brothers which have died in the past year.
