Situated in an entirely new and different
environment, Granger 's since the opening P
dance on Saturday night, April eighteenth,
has proved a popular rendezvous. to those
who find recreation in dancing. Established
in a fine new pavilion, attractively appointed,
large, and right on the shore of Whitmore
Lake, it offers a splendid place to spend an
enjoyable evening. The Lake House Pavil-
ion is the second pavilion on the highway
upon reaching the lake. There Bill Watkins
and his Granger Eight are furnishing their
same excellent brand of music. You'll enjoy
Granger's at Whitmore Lake.
