Campbell Reunion Minutes - 1914

Campbells of Nelson, PA

Nelson, Pa.      Aug. 20, 1914

Campbell Reunion Society met on the High School Grounds Aug. 20th for the twenty-first annual reunion.

Greetings were exchanged by the friends and relatives until 1 o'clock when the usual good dinner which was served.

All then assembled at the Odd Fellow's Hall on account of rain where a very good program was given. Mrs. M. B. Seely read reminiscences by Aunt Jane Tubbs. These were very interesting and were enjoyed by all. Mrs. Harry Kemp gave a very good reading. Mrs. Will Monroe proved her loyalty to the Clan by giving a talk in which she urged all members to be present at each and every Reunion. We wish the absent members might have heard it. Letters were read from a number of absent friends.

About one-hundred were present. The meeting was adjourned earlier than usual because of a hard storm. Although the weather was not as favorable as usual all reported an excellent time.
