The preparations for the German picnic to be held at Platt's Grove, near Newman's Addition, September 2, are being pushed right along and it will doubtless be the greatest event ever undertaken by the Germans of Mansfield.  All who love the Fatherland will join in the festivities which are intended as a celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of reunited Germany.

There will be a big industrial parade in the morning to represent the industries of the German people of Mansfield and all are invited to participate in the display, which will not be limited to Germans only.  The city police force, fire department and officials will be invited and the public is welcome.
