Wednesday, September 9, 1936

plesant all day
Mother rec'd letter from Clara telling us of her safe arrival
I picked and canned two cans of plums and made oatflake cookies^-
Iliff, Florence & Delbert called this morning-
There is to be a variety shower* for Mildred Saturday afternoon at Florences
I eec'd invitation from Frances today
Harry called this eve on his way to Iliffs


Invitation to Mildred's variety shower

Envelop for the invitation above showing postmark


*A "variety shower" appears to be very similar to our current bridal shower, but it is done after the bride returns from the honeymoon. Games, gifts, & food were common themes, as they are now.

^It must be cooler, Irene is back to making oatflake cookies!

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
