Numerous Hallowe’en Social Affairs Planned
Numerous Hallowe’en social affairs are being planned for tonight and tomorrow night.
The entertainment being staged at the grammar school under the auspices of the Parent-Teacher Association is in the nature of a Hollowe’en affair, and promises to attract a large audience.
Miss Muriel Henry is planning to entertain a number of her young friends at the home of her parents
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Henry.
Little Miss Ernestine Turner has a Hallowe’en party planned for tomorrow evening at the ranch home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Turner.
Miss Grace Fabry is also to be hostess at a party at the family home on Vine Street.
Both the senior and junior high schools have invitations out for a mask and costume parties. Both parties will be held at the high school building, but each will be independant of the other.
The little folks and the juniors are to have a Hallowe’en party Saturday afternoon at the Baptist church. Games will be played and a general good time will be enjoyed. This will be followed by refreshments.

This “Looking Back” view at Paso Robles history comes from one of the hundreds of local newspapers in the Paso Robles Area Historical Society collection. At least 18 local newspapers, dating from the 1800s, have reported on local, national and world events, providing priceless historical views of our community that are not available from any other source. The Historical Society is seeking community support for the multi-phased Newspaper Preservation Project to help fund the transfer of these aged and fragile pages to microfilm and digital images. See the society website for more information about becoming a member or donating to any phase of this project.
The Paso Robles Daily News is pleased to support this important project. Watch this space for future “Looking Back” articles.
