Women from around the country attended the 1925 National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs Convention, held in Portland.

On July 18th, the last day of the convention, the delegates attended an outing to Old Orchard Beach. The day at the seaside resort town was called "Prankfest," and consisted of dancing and local attractions, including the "Caterpillar" ride at Palace Playland.
