1932 - The Second Reunion of The Newton Family

  The second reunion of the Newton family was held in the woods of the old Newton homestead near Barnes Corners.
It had rained all of the proceeding day and night but cleared off beautifully and was very lovely in the woods.
With the exception of one car getting stuck in the muddy road everyone arrived safely.

Tables and benches were erected by the men and a fireplace built for making coffee.
Dinner was the first order of the day and proved a great success both as to food and fun.
After dinner the business meeting was called to order by the Pres. Dewitt Newton and the Secretary's report called for.

The minutes of the last meeting and the Treasure's report were read by the Secretary Mrs. Emma J. Harrington in the midst of great confusion after continual rapping of the gavel.
The minutes were approved and seconded and new business called for.

The collection was then taken and responded to liberally.

The business meeting then closed by unanimous consent.

  Some pictures were taken then a hilarious game of base ball was played between the yellow socks and green skirts captained by Cedric Roof and Jack Lynch, respectably. It was a very peaceful game due to the enormous size of the empire, Louis Milton Newton, no one could argue his decisions.
After the thirty-seventh inning the game was forced to end due to a shortage of tree limbs in the woods, some having used for bats.
  As the score board broke so many times it was rather doubtful which team carried off the honors but it was believed that the yellow socks had a slight edge.
However, both captains shook hand and no hard feeling were held by anyone except the President Dewitt Newton who had to be soundly spanked both because of his birthday and behavior.
The reunion then disbanded after everyone had pronounced it a successful and very happy day.
