Second Painter Family Reunion

The second annual reunion of the Painter Family, held at Cummin's Park, Sept. 13, 1903, was attended by a large crowd of members and friends.

After a bountiful dinner, the meeting was called to order by W. C. Hess, of Middletown, Ind., who acted as president pro tem., in the absence of Mr. P. P. Painter, who was in Los Angeles, Cal.

After a song by the assembly, prayer was offered by George W. A. Painter, of Summitville, Ind. A quartet consisting of Messrs. Stoute, Walker, B. H. Painter and Ora D. Sanders, of Middletown, Ind., rendered a fine vocal selection.

Minutes of the first meeting were then read and approved. No enrollment was called for.

Another quartet, consisting of George Brown and wife, of Summitville, Ind., and Lewis Painter and wife, of Alexandria, Ind., rendered a vocal selection.

Dr. L. H. Painter, of Cowan, Ind., then delivered the speech of the day, which was of merit and an honor to the occasion.

A second selection by the first quartets was then sung.

An original poem, entitled "Our Grandfathers," was read by B. H. Painter.

The election of officers resulted in a unanimous vote to retain those already in office, viz.: P. P. Painter, President; L. H. Painter, M. D., Vice-President, and B. H. Painter, M. D., Secretary and Treasurer.

The Executive Committee for the following year is William A. Painter, Chairman.
