1916: Lyceum Society has four attractions this year


Adaline Reilly’s brother, Donnie Johnson of Chester, picked up Adaline last week, and they visited their sister Connie and brother-in-law Norm Neuharth at Wolsey and their sister-in-law Iris Johnson, Wolsey.

Adaline’s granddaughter Crystal Blair visited last Thursday and Friday. On Saturday Barb Reilly and Crystal and children went on to their move to Tennessee.

Hannah Wehlander returned from her mission trip to Peru, where she was involved with teaching music and drums to students.

Marlin Clendening, Lori, Hannah and Rosalie Wehlander were in Woonsocket for the 4th of July activities and to visit family.

The Wehlanders have spent time in Mitchell helping Hannah move before the school year begins.


1916 – The Lyceum Society was sponsoring four attractions that year. A concert, the St. Clair Sister, the Homeland Quartet and Chaplain EH Laughter. Season tickets were $1.50 for adults and $.50 for under 12. When the Esmond Progressive Farmers Club met, the debate issue was that farming with a tractor is not as successful materially and financially as farming with horses.
