After the installation ceremony
the guests were invited to be seated
at ;he banquet table. About 300
plates were set and a sumptuous
feast was served by twelve waiters.
The supper was under the super
vision of Mr. Clark Williams and
was one of the best ever served in
Meade. The Woodmen are a unit
in tendering to Mr. Williams their
appreciation of the excellent manner
in which he prepared the banquet.
In fact credit is due to all the Wood
men who in any way assisted to
make the affair a success, and no
one shirked any responsibility
Quite a number of the invited guests
commented on the supper very high
ly. It has so inspired the the mem

be a yearly occurance.
