GOOD TEMPLARY AT WHITEHAVEN
The members of the "Flower of the West" Lodge No. 48, I. O. G. T.,
celebrated their tenth anniversary on Tuesday last, in the Hogarth Church. The
anniversary took the form of a tea and public meeting. At five o'clock over 100
members and friends partook of tea, their wants being ably looked after by
and Mrs. STRICKLAND
At 7:30 a public meeting was held, the chair being occupied by Mr. L.
BORROWDALE, and there was a very large audience. The members were very
fortunate in securing the services of Bro. Jack YOUNG, of Tynemouth. He gave a very
stirring Temperance address, basing his remarks on "What Tom MacFARLANE said
when the clock struck eight." The audience listened with rapt attention to his
speech, and were greatly delighted with his striking illustrations.
Mr. DUTSON (missioner at Hogarth Church) also addressed the meeting.
The flowing programme was very efficiently rendered:
Prayer, Mr. DUTSON
Duet, Miss M. KAIGHAM and Mr. A. LITT
Solo, Bro. MULHOLLAND
Temperance address, Bro. Jack YOUNG
Solo, Mr. Harold BURNYEAT
Address, Mr. DUTSON
Mr. Joseph BORROWDALE presided at the organ.
At the close of the programme, Bro. RICHARDSON proposed a vote of
thanks to all who had assisted to make the anniversary a success. This was
seconded by Bro. STOCKDALE, and carried with acclamation.
At the close of the meeting eighteen persons handed in their names to
become members of the Good Templar Order. Altogether the anniversary was a
decided success, and great good will no doubt be the result.
