Were the Members of the Bible Classes at the Home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Katzenbach.

We had a fine time! We had a barrel of fun! These and similar exclamations have been heard from the ladies of the various Bible classes and lady teachers of the Sunday Schools of our town, who were entertained by the M. E. Ladies Bible Class last Thursday afternoon at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Katzenbach. The hours from 3 until 6 was filled with one round of pleasure. After a hearty welcome each lady registered. The program opened with a song and prayer. Mrs. Ely gave the welcome address. The music was furnished by Mr. Gail Eckard, Miss Thelma Cook and Little Helen Higgins. Two splendid-readings were given by Miss Zona Wilson and Little Helen Higgins. The program was interspersed  with "stunts" "question contents" and "tongue twisters", all of which afforded  great amusment. At the close of the program dainty  refreshments we're served to the guests on the lawn. Mr. Pierson appeared on the scene and took a picture of the merry crowd. The afternoon's entertainment closed with a few races. The "fat women's" race was won by Mrs, W. O.  Denman with several close seconds  The "lean women's" race met with a few accidents, but at last was won by Mrs. Mitchell, after one of the "runners" had been thrown out on  account of clumsiness. If you don't belong to a Bible Class you better join next Sunday and be sure to have apart in the next ''barrell of fun." The registered showed the following names:

Note from Bobbie Goodman
I am guessing the photo with ladies in men's hats was a party type meeting of the Entre Nous Club  because of the  ages of the women.  They would be a cut older than Bi Weekly Club and  I have an old pix of a Bridge Club where the women were all dressed up silly.........probably Halloween party.  My Mom was of the Bi Weekly era and she is in pix. but not in Bi Weekly.  I think after I dropped out of Young Women's Club, the Entre Nous were all dead, and Young Women were no longer "Young"  so they changed name to Greenup Women's Club.  All these women did a lot for our town  and I'm sorry they are all defunct.
