Chestnut Ridge Community Puts on Play

[1938] The young people of Chestnut Ridge put on a play last Thursday night, at the regular meeting of the Community Council that was as well acted as you usually see plays of that type anywhere. The cast for the play called "The Family Meets the Wife", was as follows: The Mother, Mrs. Rosalee MAYLE; The sisters, Miss Violet POE and Miss Opal POE. A cousin, Miss Josephine MAYLE; The son, Mr. Audward ADAMS; The wife, Miss Lenora ADAMS. The play was given to a crowded house. Other numbers on the program consisted of tap dancing and songs, also a discussion of the problems of the community by the older folks. These young folk have a lot of natural talent for this kind of work, and it should be developed.
