Merrie Partie Club
Merrie Partie Club.
On 15th September, a very pleasant dance was held in the “Old Navals Hall” by the “Merrie Partie Club.” The gathering was the outcome of an endeavour by five boys and five girls to bring about closer social fellowship between the younger members of Head Office.
A gratifying number (about sixty-five couples) attended the dance, and judging by the enthusiasm aroused, they spent a most delightful evening.
Novelty dances (such as confetti, twilight, balloon and chain) were enjoyed by all.
The orchestra was untiring in its efforts to help towards the success of the evening.
Light refreshments were served by the committee. Dancing continued until 12 o'clock at which hour a very enjoyable evening was brought to an end.
