The Masonic Hall, the site of the 1923 Christmas Eve dance, is left of center, ca. 1915. Today’s Masonic Hall is in the same location.

Black Diamond will celebrate Christmas this year with a big community Christmas tree at the Black Diamond Theatre on Christmas Eve, December 24.

Arrangements have been made with Santa Claus to have him on hand with gifts and toys for every boy and girl in camp under 14 years of age. This week a census of the camp was taken in order to obtain the name of every child, and any parent who has not reported is requested to notify Jack Clarkin at the mine office.

The program will begin promptly at 6 p.m., the entertainment to be provided by the Camp Fire Girls. Following the program there will be a dance at the Masonic Hall. Henry Babb is chairman of the committee on arrangements, P.N. Kurth and Walter Koerner make up the purchasing committee and Wm. Nicholsen and Ralph Gailey the entertainment committee.

Christmas dance

Christmas Eve is the date set for the initial appearance in Black Diamond of Bab’s B.B. Ladies’ Orchestra, a six-piece musical organization which is said to be unsurpassed in the rendition of popular dance numbers.

The occasion will be the big Christmas Eve dance at the Masonic Hall, to follow immediately after the community tree and entertainment at the theatre. Harmony, novelties, and syncopation are promised in the bills announcing the dance. An invitation is extended to everyone, with the admission set at $1.10, including the war tax.
