75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 28, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 28, 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 Tuesday, Mar 28:

Up before 7:00. Norma, V. Rippey & I left for F. B. Meeting at Carroll at 10:00.
Ate lunch in hall. Rehearsed awhile. Sang in pm. Made 20 points. Union got superior.
Down town awhile. Home at 6:00. Chored, ate, took folks car in. Home at 11:00. to bed
Reva George
E. Williams
G. Ford
Norma Williams
Ruth Bolger
Dora McLaughlin

My comment: They represented Union township in the competition, apparently. Superior rating sounds pretty good to me. She listed the others involved. Interesting activity. Too bad she didn't mention what song(s) they sang.

Found the neat old early Farm Bureau sign...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
