"Among the highlights of the three-day 250th anniversary celebration was the Settler's Day celebration on Monday, May 28, 1894. The day's activities included a procession that included four divisions of marchers, bands, and floats. A float containing 'young ladies of Wakefield High School' was part of the procession's second division. Dressed in white, the ladies represented the 13 original colonies and the 44 states that were in the union at the time. Also on the float was Miss Grace Carlton as the Goddess of Liberty, along with Miss Mitchell, Peace Miss Nellie Temple, Plenty Miss Grace S. White, Education and Miss Black, Justice. It was also reported that the four seasons were represented, as was Columbia." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
