Entertains Norwood Road Club
Mrs. Celia Martin delightfully entertained the members of the Norwood Road Club yesterday. After a dainty one o’clock luncheon and a short business meeting presided over by the president, Mrs. Martin, an excellent program with “The New England States” as a topic was given. A paper on “Rhode Island” was read by Mrs. Gertrude Bailey. “Maine” was cleverly handled by Mrs. Martin and “The Customs of the New England People” was the topic of Mrs. Nellie Howe’s paper. A beautiful duet was rendered by Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Howe with Mrs. Bailey at the piano. A part of the afternoon was spent in sewing for the hostess. Mrs. R.W. Hiner was a guest of the club.
