1910 Feb 3 – Winnipegosis
A very successful social and lecture was held in the Methodist church on Saturday evening Jan. 29th. The church was crowded to the doors and a highly interesting lecture was given on “The Girl that Wouldn’t Marry” by the popular Methodist minister, Rev. W.E. Rowan. The lecture was frequently punctuated with laughter and applause and at its completion on the proposition of the chairman, Mr. Shannon, seconded by J. McCaulay, a vote of thanks was accorded the lecturer for his fascinating lecture. Songs were rendered by Mr. Howlett, of Fork River, Mrs. Oakes, Miss Hurst and choruses were also rendered. The accompanists were Mrs. A. McArthur and Mrs. J. McCaulay. A hearty vote of thanks to the chairman was moved by Rev. W.E. Rowan and seconded by Dr. A.E. Medd, and was carried unanimously. Refreshments wee afterwards provided. Proceeds amounted to $36.
