Thomas Family Reunion
Rare social feature of Christian Community was that of the Thomas family reunion on Wednesday, July 16.
Father, mother, eight sons, three daughters, two daughter-in-laws and four grandchildren with a dozen or more invited friends made up the party.
For the first time in over eight years the boys and girls were all assembled back home again at the same time.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas can well be proud of their children, and to have them gather around the large family table once again was a grea joy to them indeed.
The spacious dining room and table was a scene of beauty, the season flowers were used i profusion and artistically arranged, but the most pleasing sight (especially to the boys) was that which the eye beheld on the table. After prayer of thanksgiving all partook heartily of the many good things to numerous to mention, that had been so carefully prepared by the monter and sisters. This occasion was called at the return of the three boys who had answered their country’s call and who are soon to return to their farmer positions. In this family there are eleven children. Arthur J., who volunteered and joined the colors soon after America entered the World War, now soon to return to Washington, D. C., to take charge of his former position in the treasury department there. Rev. Luther A., pastor of St. Luke’s and St. Mark’s, Mooresville, N. C.; Junious D., a leading merchant of Yadkin; Miss Jennie, a public school teacher; Irvin M., just home from overseas, having been in France, Belgium, Switzerland and some five months in service in the navy, now of Washington, D. C., where he holds a position with the treasury department; Miss Maye [sic] a student of Mount Amoena Seminary; Roy, a student of the Collegiate Institute, Mt. Pleasant, N. C.; Clyde, in the high school in Salisbury; Carr and Pearl are at home still attending the rural schools.
The pleasant day passed all to soon and as the different ones departed, each expressed a wish for many more such gatherings.
