Halloween-themed records are few and far between here at the Maritime Conference Archives but the Central Methodist Church (later Central United) Epworth League really stepped up to the plate with their nicely-decorated invitation to a Halloween party c. 1916:

Central Methodist Halloween invitation, 1916

 

Here’s a transcript for those of you who are having a hard time with the writing:

“Miss M. Lea,

The Epworth League of the C.M.C.

On Hallow E’en “At Home” will be

At eight, in the school room, with music and Tea

And games of the hour’s witchery.

We invite you to come and wish merry heart

In our evening’s pleasure to take a part.

J.C. Pincock

President”
