Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
([ca. 1990?])

Town hall

the early days came here in great numbers during the
season of its migration.
Mr. Carbys congratulated the citizens of the Town of Mequon
upon the renaisance of community spirit. He concluded by
saying that to us the Town of Mequon constitutes sacred
ground and that we should try to keep it what it has
always seemed to be to us, the finest town in the country.
At the conclusion of the address, Mr. Gruenwald who had the
contract for the erection of the building, delivered
possession of the same, symbolically to Mr. Oscar Sommer,
-)ai r       e Iowr, by presenting him with a large key.
Mr. Sommer ce-pted this and in a few well chosen words
expressed the gratitude of the officials of the Town to the
citizens and voters to the contractors and all others
conneoted with the erection of the building and to the
representatives of the government.
At the conclusion of the addresses, more music was rendered
after which the large audience inspected the building and
retired to the hall below where coffee and doughnuts were
served as refreshments. Many pleasant visits were had by
old residents, visitors, and old friends.
Ihe dedication of the Town Hall was followed in the next
several weeks by an open house, orchestra of the Milwaukee
Rufus Kini  High School rendering stirring and delightful
music.  M~iss June Patton rendered several solos.  Music
was under the direction of Miss Ellen Sargeant and a fair-
bazaar was also held. These occasions will long be remembered.
