July 4th Picnic in the Town of Grant, WI
The citizens, of the Town of Grant, propose to have an old-fashioned celebration of their own on July 4th. The celebration will be held at Rexer's Corners. At 3 an oration will be delivered by R.J. MacBride, after which a picnic dinner will be partaken. P.H. Lynch will read the Declaration of Independence. The committee, for the arrangements, has rented the hotel for the evening, where the festivities will wind up with a grand ball. The Brass Band will be in attendance in the afternoon. The occasion will undoubtedly be a pleasant one.
