With wide flung arms Grimsby greets her children of former years. The old town never was in as festive a mood as it is now. Never have so many homes been thrown open at one time for the reception of guests. All week the Old Boys and Old Girls have been flocking home and the trains to-night and to-morrow will deposit hundreds more besides the many who will come by automobile. Playmates and sweethearts of former days will once again walk the streets and seek the old familiar haunts that were so near and dear to them in the childhood days gone by. Never has the old town looked so gay. Houses and stores have been wonderfully and beautifully decorated while the street decorations erected by Turner and Son of Peterboro are excellent in every detail. They have done their work well...race track...stands and booths...merry-go-round...Palmer's Free Vaudville Show on Oak Street...automobile parade...Capt. John Slatter and his 48th Highlanders Band of Toronto...baseball games...Work on the Memorial Gates at the Highway entrance to Queen's Lawn Cemetery is being rushed rapidly forward by Contractor Robt. Gordon and they will be unveiled on Saturday morning at 11 o'clock. The 48th Highlanders band will supply the music for this event and the unveiling will be done by the oldest Old Boy Clergyman present at the Reunion.
