“Leaving on Thursday from the United Church here were the representatives to Fort Myers, Florida. They were Misses Joy Jackson and Madge Anderson and Mr. Verdon Terry. They were accompanied by the Rev. and Mrs. Lewin Williams and Mrs. Harry McCoy.

“Mr. and Mrs. Haig Bodden left for vacation; they are expected to go to the U.S.A. and Canada.

“Misses Pat Richardson and Marsha FreirMood of Anderson, Indiana, were special guests here this week. They conducted a one-week Vacation Bible School at the Church of God Chapel.

“The school was very successful and average attendance was 60. The week ended with a closing programme on Saturday night, a display of handwork, songs learned and a special skit. We want to express our thanks and appreciation to the girls for the good work they did.

“Leaving on Monday for Jamaica on vacation were the Rev. and Mrs. Compton Williams.”
