On February 13-14, 1918, the men from Grandview, Upper Arlington, and Marble Cliff amused the tri-village community with a “womanless wedding.” The Grandview Brotherhood staged a mock wedding with an all-male cast as a community fundraiser. Both performances were sold out and deemed a huge success. An article from the March 1918 issue states, “The bride presented a stunning appearance in a white satin gown, carrying a shower bouquet of roses and lilies-of-the-valley. The lady guests present were envious of the willowy figure of the bride.”

    Isn't it great? The community came up with some pretty creative entertainment in the absence of television and computers :)
