LINTON RED CROSS WORKERS ENTERTAINED
The Parish Hall was crowded on Wednesday night, when the "Diggers" of the Linton district entertained the Red Cross workers. Chaplain R L Dean made a very capable chairman, and a short musical and dramatic programme was given by the Misses Ball, Whitehand, and Barry, Messrs Sparrow, Roberts, Bennett, Nicol, Carroll, and Saunders, and choruses by the State school children.
The chairman, in the course of a forceful and original speech, eulogized the efforts of the women of Australia during the war period, and gave it as his opinion that they had the hardest and most anxious part to perform. He quoted the figures as to money and goods that the Linton Red Cross branch had sent to the front to show how nobly they had done their bit in the town and district.
He then presented medals to the officers of the branch, viz., Mrs D Brown, Mrs F OBeirne, Mrs R E Saunders, Mrs A J Smith, and Miss Ivy Morgan.
Specially prepared certificates were also handed to the whole of the workers, numbering about 80. Mrs Morgan responded on behalf of the ladies. Supper was provided, after which a dance was held.
