Amanuensis Monday: Morristown TN Social News, 1946, Part 2

Thanks to John at Transylvanian Dutch for providing a framework (and nudge) for transcribing family records, news clippings and other treasures.

This is part two (of three) of a transcription of selections from the “Society News and Personal Notes” column from the Morristown (TN) Gazette and Mail, Friday, May 24, 1946, page 3.  I have not transcribed the Daily Calendar, announcements of Evangelistic Services, Community Club meeting, Singing Convention meeting, the schedule for commencement at Morristown College and an announcement of Summer School that were listed in the column. 

Miss Mary Hickey, who will retire this year after serving for many years as teacher of the first grade in Rose School, was honored with a beautifully planned luncheon, on Thursday at one o’clock given by the staff of Rose at Mrs. Hayter’s, West Main.

The table was centered with a low arrangement of bright spring flowers and a delicious turkey menu was served to the honoree and the following teachers:  Misses Katty Gray, Edith Reese, Margaret Woods, Gladys Templin, Mary Nance, Reine Hale, Mesdames Lois Bales and Willie Kate Riggs.

On Wednesday afternoon, the mothers and pupils of he first grade at Rose tendered a picnic honoring Miss Hickey at the home of Mrs. Wilbur Noe in Lyn-Mar Hill.  Little Donna Noe is a member of this class.  The beautiful home and lawn provided an ideal setting for the congenial group.  Before adjournment, Miss Hickey was presented with a lovely gift as a tribute from her devoted pupils.
