In August 1919 we first met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Adams, in honor of Dr. R.U. Adams of Kalamazoo, and Harry Adams of Marcellus. (Handwritten note by the secretary)

News article (probably Marcellus News):

Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Adams entertained about thirty-five of the Adams family at their farm home at Harmony Chapel on Sunday, July 6th. The assembly was a “Welcome Home” to Lieut. Harry Adams, of Los Angeles, Calif., and Capt. and Mrs. R.U. Adams of Kalamazoo, all of whom recently returned from overseas service. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. George Adams and Hyldred of Marcellus, Hazel Adams of Battle Creek, Helen Adams of Flint, Lieut. Harry Adams of Los Angeles, Calif., Mr. and Mrs. M.C. Adams of South Bend, Mrs. Sarah McKain of New Carlisle, Ind., Mr. And Mrs. A.L. Adams and family of Harmony Chapel, Dr. and Mrs. R.U. Adams of Kalamazoo, Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Adams and son Horace, of Paw Paw, Mr. and Mrs. D.L. Thornton and daughters, Mrs. Anna Adams, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Adams and family of Lawton, and Ralph Munson of Kalamazoo.
