75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 4, 1937


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 4, 1937


This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.


Here is the short entry for Sunday, July 4: [bold]

Keen day. Really hot. Fried chicken, took shower & got picnic. Took Lund's car to Spring Brook. Helen with me for supper. Pete did chores. Ate supper with the boys at the Park. To Spring Lake to the Dawn Dance.

Here is the long entry for Sunday, July 4: [bold]

Keen day but really hot. Fried chicken, took a shower, & got picnic dinner. Pete here at 1:00. Took Lund's car to Spring Lake [think she actually meant Spring Brook, as in short entry!]. "Kneaded bread." [Have no idea what that means!] There till 5:00. Helen came home with me. Pete did chores. Boys back here at 7:30. Ate supper at the Park & then went to Spring Lake to Dawn Dance. Home at 4:00. 

My comments: Think she was resting up all week for this very active, and long, day. Appears they went both to Spring Brook (a lake 15 or so miles to the Southeast) and Spring Lake (a lake 15 or so miles to the Northwest). Both great places to spend a holiday.

4th of July and Fried Chicken… hard combination to beat, correct?  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
