Saturday, May 1st was the closing day of Oakland School. About ten o'clock the crown began to gather and before noon there was a large crowd coming from all directions with large baskets filled with all kinds of good tings to eat. If you don't think so ask some of the directors who were there. Some said they weren't able to work in the afternoon. Games were played, pictures were taken and a good time was enjoyed by all.
