Semi-Centennial supper (taken from Somerville Journal, February 26, 1904.)

The semi-centennial parish supper of the First Universalist Church on Friday evening of last week was a grand success in every way. Under the direction of the Ladies' Sewing Circle, of which Mrs. Lyman H. Brown is president, nine long tables were spread in the large vestry and two in each of the small vestries, from which was served one of the best suppers that these ladies have ever served, and but few societies have as fine a reputation. Mrs. Lyman H. Brown, Mrs. George D. Haven, and Mrs. I. H. Wiley had charge of the supplies in the kitchen, and the guests were served by Mesdames E. C. Hall, Fannie Shaw Graves, J. W. Peak, Ida Smith, Mabelle H. Gooding, J. E. Kelley, Henry S. Barron, A. E. Southworth, W. J. Pingree, R. M. Richardson, P. B. S. Thayer, Frank M. Lowell, Frank Thomas, F. L. Pingree, Robert Hayes, Joseph W. Mess, Edward H. Bolton, Carrie D. Coulter, Arthur W. Glines, Mattie S. Rines, Misses Ella Freeman, Helen J. Whipple, Mary C. Mills, Ida R. Smith, Abbie L. Day, Annie G. Stover, Mary F. Freeman, Estella M. Royal, Alice M. Nickerson, Fannie M. Glines, Mabel G. Delano, Emily Poor, under the direction of Mrs. R. Y. Gifford, head waiter, and Mrs. William Taylor, assistant.

During the supper M. J. Messer and his wife and Miss Nettie Coburn gave the following musical selections: Mendelssohn's ‘Festival March’; Schlepegrell's overture, ‘Narcissus’; a selection, ‘Foxy Quiller,’ De-Koven; ‘Tone Pictures of the North and South,’ Bendix; and Miss Coburn gave a cornet solo. The church quartette sang ‘Spring Song’ and ‘Forget Me Not,’ and Miss Smith, the soprano of the church quartette, sang ‘The Willows.’
