One of the most pleasant celebrations held in the county Monday was the reunion of the Hubbs families held at Glen Easton.
For ten years these reunions have been bringing parents and children, grand parents, and aunts, uncles and cousins together, renewing ties of love and affection. Each year one or more of the older ones are missed, having been called to the long rest, and each year new faces appear to take their places in the journey through life.
The Hubbs family is one of the oldest in the county, and all through the long years of building up the communities this family has been one of the leaders.
Early in the morning the people began to gather at the Jr. O. U. A. M. hall with baskets laden with vegetables, and when the ables were spread there was an abundance of food, the menu including all the garden products served hot. About one hundred people ate both dinner and supper and there were several baskets of fragments left.
Many friendships were renewed and many more were made. The younger folks were highly entertained by the older ones who were in a reminiscent mood and told of interesting happenings of former days.
The hall was decorated in keeping with the day, bunting being used, and many bouquets of brilliant flowers adorned the tables.
In the afternoon a party was shown through the J. M. Harris & Sons' flour mill. New machinery was recently placed in the mill, making it up?to?date in every department, from the 15 h.p. gas engine to the shipping facilities of the flour.
An orchestra composed of Dr. W. F. Crow, C. M. Penick, C. B. Harris, O. H. Carpenter and Otis Lutes rendered several selections after dinner.
Glen Easton is a beautiful location for a village and the aim of the inhabitants seems to be to make it more beautiful, if that could be, than nature has done. It lies cozily nestled between high hills, some of which are carpeted with grass and grain, and others are still wooded with forest trees. Many yards are ablaze with flowers of brilliant hues and the lawns are all well cared for.
The hundred or more people who attended who attended the reunion declared it was the best one of the ten and all thanked the promoters, especially Miss Lizzie Hubbs of Moundsville, who left nothing undone to make it the success it was.
