Hospital Ball: 0050.0875

A SUCCESSFUL BALL – The Benefit In Aid of the Hospital Was Largely Attended.

The ball given by the ladies last Tuesday evening at Wentworth hall, for the benefit of the St. Eugene hospital, was a marked success in every way.  Perhaps there has never been a dance in this district where those in attendance had such an enjoyable time.  The number present was very large, but when the floor became too crowded for comfort the dancers took it in good part and enjoyed it the more,  About 12 o’clock a tasty lunch was served, after which dancing was resumed until a late hour.


Arrangements were made with Mr. Wentworth for two reception rooms in the hotel, which added very much to the convenience of the program for the evening.  The committees in charge of the entertainment were made up as follows:

            Ball committee – Mesdames McInnes, Morris, Costigan, Magee, Murphy, McConnell, Brown and Erickson.

            Decoration committee – Messrs. H. Nevins, A.E. Watt, P. Rookes, R. Gunn, A.L. McDermid and M. Rockendorf.
