REIDSVILLE KIWANIANS TAKE BEATING IN BALL
May 31-June 6, 1925
Kiwanians from Reidsville and from Leaksville-Spray got together in Reidsville to enjoy communion and companionship and it was a most pleasant occasion, with one exception for the host Reidsville club.
The exception was a baseball game between the two clubs that the visitors from Leaksville-Spray won convincingly, 13-9.
After the game, the visiting Kiwanians were guests of the Reidsville club at a dinner at the Belvedere Hotel.
