Coston Family Reunion report, September 1910

From The Geneva (NY) Daily News, September 2, 1910

Stanley, N. Y. - The fifth annual reunion of the Coston family was held Wednesday, Aug. 31st, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Coston, near Phelps, with 33 members of the family in attendance. The day was spent enjoying outdoor sports and games, winners being as follows: 100 yd dash for men,  L. C. Goodman; 100 yd dash for ladies, Mrs. F. C. Coston; 100 yd dash for children over eight, Edgar Jones; small boys foot race, Lewis Coston; potato race, Mrs. L. C. Goodman; three-legged race, Thomas Gulvin and James Coston. A pie eating contest, which caused much merriment, was won by Wm. Coston. A musical program was given in the evening, and it was decided to hold the next reunion at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Gulvin. Mrs. Gulvin was elected president, Mrs. Wm. Jones, vice-president, and L. C. Goodman, committee on games and sports. A bountiful dinner and supper were served on the spacious veranda and an enjoyable time was had by all.

Lewis Coston is my great-grandfather, whom I have good memories of. F. G. Coston and Mrs. are my great-great grandparents.

I love the thought of my family making the Society News in 1910.
