1941 - The Eleventh Reunion of The Newton Family

  The eleventh Reunion of the Newton Tribe was held on the lawn of Lloyd Voss's home in Short Tract, N.Y. on August 2, 1941.
Few people came from a distance partly because the distance was so great and partly because of extra work at places where they were employed.
The night before one lone Newton came in a drenching rain and being the only Newton from away he found himself very popular throughout the day.
Only 25 people were present but a very good time was enjoyed by all.
Seven of the twenty-five were visitors.

The picnic was conspicuous for it's lack of children. The younger generation were epically amused over young David Kellogg's antics some of which drew exclamations of horror from the elders; especially when he frequently doused the kitten in the boiler of water that stood on the porch.

Base ball was played while dinner was being prepared.
After dinner a business meeting followed.
Some snap shots were taken, some of which didn't prove to be very good.
Groups sat in chairs or on benches on the lawn and chatted and watched the large group of 4 children present.
Then the company broke up and went to their several houses, declaring they had had a wonderful dinner and very good time.
