One of the extra my by pleasing features on the grounds is the band concerts. The Williamsport band plays every afternoon and Friday All Day. The music is not Only High class but is the More appreciated because it is purely a Warren county product. This is the second exhibit of the kind held in Warren county. Last year the Effort was highly successful. The Start this year books most auspicious. The display is most attractive and both the Quantity and the Quality of the exhibits do great credit to Warren county.
