Bovina Farmers' Picnic 1889

While researching in the 1889 Delaware Republican Newspaper, I found this item in the August 31, issue: "The Farmers' picnic at Bovina on Wednesday of this week was well attended a most enjoyable time was had. Addresses were made by Rev. Dr. Moore, of Margaretville, and Mr. A.B. Gilchrist, of Meredith, and the Delhi Cornet Band furnished enlivening music."

My first evidence of a Bovina town picnic in the 19th century. And I expect it won't be the last....

The Bovina Town-wide Lawn Sale/Parade/Picnic for 2009 will be July 18. Hope you all can come!
