Decoration Day was observed at Chili as usual. On account of the rain no one went to the cemetery in the a.m. The W.C.T.U gave a 15 cent lunch at the M.E. Church, and the program was held at the M.W.A. Hall. Rev. Wilson Mallory was the speaker followed by a fine program from the children of Fremont District No. 2 and Chili school. The Sternitzky band and Mr. Webster on the snare drum, by the choir and schools, furnished music. The Boy Scouts took quite a part. Afterwards they went to the graveyard and decorated the graves of the soldiers.
