Source: "Souvenir Program, Victory Federated Church, Old Home Day, July 30, 1938"
The program for the 9th Old Home Day notes that this event, sponsored by the Victory Federated Church, was held the last Saturday in July of each year. Half of the pamphlet is a sentimental, generalized patriotic speech that sheds no light upon Victory's history. The rest contains many ads for area Cayuga and Wayne County businesses. Souvenir programs such as this are useful time capsules of general economic and individual business change, serving historians and genealogists as partial business directories for small-town and rural communities.
