1941 May Day Parade
Fanfare of trumpets … an expectant silence falls over the audience … the court approaches … and the queen is crowned - long live the queen! … May Pole dance, tumbling, archery, comedy - May Day in Olde England …
Visitors and college friends gather at Oakwood for the queen’s luncheon … May Day parade … Robin Hood and Little John take the prize … marching bands … a sight long to be remembered.
(Aurora 1942, pg. 124 recording the 1941 May Day celebration.)
