A Look Back in Time: Dec. 25, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Dec. 25, 1919.

The Rotarians and Ben Collier arranged a great Christmas treat for Sheridan children at the Orpheum this morning, and the youngsters responded with a genuine enthusiasm, coming early and staying late. The program ended with a Charlie Chaplin feature, and each child upon leaving the theater received a bag of candy and a bird whistle.

Val Portz came up from his ranch near Arvada earlier this week and is spending Christmas visiting his wife and daughter.

Several Sheridan people in preference to entertaining guests at their homes today were hosts to their friends at the Idlewild cafe.

Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Perkins entertained at a Christmas party at their home today.
