The employes [sic] employees of Wm. Brunt & Co. were given a supper and dance on Friday evening, November 19, in the second story of the new brick slip house. It was a sort of dedication affair, and was participated in by nearly three hundred persons, many of whom were invited guests. I was the recipient of a special invitation, and gladly accepted, for it is known that there is always lots of fun in the air when the Brunts have anything to do with a social entertainment. Haynes' full brass band of twenty-two pieces and Baker's orchestra furnished the dulcet strains of music. Mr. Haynes, the leader of the band, is foreman of the kilns, and took especial pains to see that the music was exceptionally fine. Tables were provided at one end of the building which were groaning with good things to eat, served along with hot coffee prepared by some of the lady employes [sic] employees. The members of the firm were untiring in their efforts to see that they all got a feast and had a jolly evening. They mingled with their employes [sic] employees in a manner that I was glad to see, and which is worthy of emulation. I hope this is only the beginning of a series of social suppers at which employers and employes [sic] employees will meet and mingle in friendly sport and enjoyment.
