* The annual motorcycle gypsy tour will be held Sunday, June 20, and promises to be the largest and best ever held. The start will be made from this place at 8 a.m. and proceed to Frederick via Woodsboro, and from there to the historic Harper's Ferry. There, on the Virginia side of the Potomac along a cool roadside . . . and amid a true gypsy atmosphere, ample refreshments in the form of good sandwiches and ice cream will be served. -- Union Bridge Pilot, June 18, 1920.
