St George’s Day
The “At Home” given last evening in honor of England’s patron saint by the St George’s Society in St George’s Home, was an unqualified success, a large number having accepted the invitation of the Society to be present. During the course of the evening the funds of the society were increasd by a sum of $6.70 a cheque for that amount being presented to the institution by Mr Masterman, executor for the late Mr Tuckwell.
Refreshments were provided during the evening and an orchestra that was in attendance discursed sweet music at intervals. Vocal solos were rendered by Messrs McLoed, Percy Evans, Bartholemew and Stevens.
The members of Britannic Lodge No 113 SOEBS celebrated St George’s day with a very enjoyable supper and ball at Walsh & Rough’s restaurant, Notre Dame Street. The room was very prettily decorated with flags and the various toasts were loyally and enthusiastically rendered.
