75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 19, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 19, 1939

This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.

Here is the daily entry for Sunday, Mar 19:

 Birthday note: Orrin H.

Up late. Did usual morning work. Ate dinner, did dishes, making 4 holes chicken setter.
Read "The Golden Hills." Don and Norma here just before Pete chored. Want us to come to. S.S. party Wednesday nite [This sentence underlined].
Chored, cleaned up, LVene & Verle came and we went over to Max & Orrin's. Played cards. Had Angel food, chic. cake, Bavarian Cream, sandwiches, coffee. Home at 1:30.

My comment: Good food! ;-)

Suppose they go to the Sunday School Party on Wednesday??

Found a good image of "4 holes chicken setter!"

Families are Forever!  ;-)
