Junior Senior Banquet - 1930

Thursday evening, May 29, the most important social event of the school year at St. Mary's took place in the Crystal Room of the Hotel Bancroft when the Junior Class was host to the Graduates at the annual Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance.

At half past seven when the guests arrived they found awaiting them long, beautifully decorated tables. Tiny place cards beckoned each person to his place and in no time delectable food was being served. Small baskets and menu cards of blue and silver, colors of the class of 1930, were found at each place. A lovely bouquet of roses furnished by Charles Baase adorned the Speaker's table.

After dinner toasts were given by the following: "To our Pastor" Margaret Mary Lowe; "To the Seniors" Angelyn Cronkite; "To the Juniors" John Greiner; "Our Parents" Frederick Bossman; "Class Motto" Mary Jahnke; "The Faculty" Margaret Mahar; "Our Athletic Directors" Frank Sullivan; Virginia Snyder gave a very interesting class prophecy. William Korth acted as toast master.

Among the guests at the dinner was Reverend Fr. Francis L. McLaughlin, pastor of St. James Church, Montague, former assistant at St. Mary's.

Kenny Anderson's Cotton Stompers furnished the music for dancing which lasted until one o'clock and to which the underclassmen were invited. The patrons and patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Nickodemus; Mr. and Mrs. W.S. McMullen; Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Cronkite; Mr. William Posey and Mr. G. Leo Weadock.
