Twin Reporters, Oct. 21, 1937
From The Courier, Oct. 21, 1937
Cliffside, Oct. 19. — Hello Friends. Don’t you like this rainy weather? The Courier does not have a weather reporter so it seems like the Twins will have to be Jo-Jo, too. We can tell you this much about the weather — start getting out your blankets, furs and woolen clothes for you will sure be needing them. And then, too, all the little children better start practicing being good for Santa Claus is just around the corner.
Next Sunday at the evening service three presents will be given at the Baptist church. First there will be a lovely present given to the couple who have been married the longest number of years. Second: a lovely present will be given to the couple having the largest number of children present. Third: a lovely present will be given to the latest newly weds present.
