The age set of 1925 was the first where all members of the circle had an identical costume. By this act, they wanted to stress there connectedness to the open world. Fonske, a status at left of the town hall, receives each year during the age set parade, a new mini costume identical to that of the age set celebrating their 50th birthday.
