One of the best homecomings since its organiztion 7 years ago was held May 8th. The was called to order by President Tom Luker. A cordial welcome was given to all. Then the group joined together to sing, "An Uncloudy Day" with Mrs. S. C. Edmundson at the piano and Mervin Bowman leading. A prayer was then given by J. A. Jones.
Everyone present was given a chance to talk. Everyone talking and telling how they have been blessed in days gone by from attending services at the church. The older ones admonishing the younger not to forget to carry on.
An autbiography of J. M. McGuire was read which dated back to 1850, taken from the Vanguard in 1913 was a very interesting article to everyone. There were only five families living in the community when J. M. McGuire moved to Comanche.
After a business meeting was held, a memorial service was held for those that had passed on the past year.
