Treasure Chest Thursday - Bridesons depart for California

Treasure Chest Thursday - Bridesons depart for California
[Another post  from my 'CRE Enterprise archives' series]

Following up on posts from Oct 18 and Oct 25:

Following are excerpts from the 3 Dec 1948 and 10 Dec 1948 'Bayard News' sections for The Coon Rapids Enterprise (from the Archives) related to the departure of the Everette and Gertrude (Kinnick) Brideson family (including children John and Jeanette) from the Bayard, Iowa, community to Sacramento, California. [As I have noted earlier, these are my maternal great aunt and uncle - she is a sister of my maternal grandfather, Paul Kinnick. They remained close to us over the years, visiting from time to time - I continue Facebook connections with several of their grandchildren even today.]

From Page 9, 3 Dec 1948:

Bridesons Honored
Mr. and Mrs. Everett Brideson, John and Jeanette have been honored at a series of dinners and luncheons for the past week in farewell to them before they leave for their new home in Sacramento, California.

From Page 8, 10 Dec 1948:

Mr. Brideson Honored
The Sunday school of the Methodist church gave a farewell pot-luck dinner in the church basement Thursday evening honoring Everett Brideson, the superintendent of the Sunday school for the past 12 years. Mrs. Brideson shared the honors as she has been Sunday school teacher for the past 25 years.
Jack Schauf, the new superintendent, presented Mr. Brideson with a gift from the group. Edwin Adamson gave the farewell address.


There are several other related stories on the two referenced pages. I'm sharing a photo image of the pdf files from the archives for each page, below. You can click on the image to see an enlarged version. You may also find the advertisements of local  businesses on the pages interesting. Of course, if you are from the area, you will also recognize other stories about your neighbors and friends on these pages.

I hope you will share your comments about what your see and read here and on Facebook and Google+

Families ( and Friends) are Forever!  ;-)
