Dorcas Society

Dorcas Society.

This Society meets every Thursday, at 2 p.m., in the Girls' Club. We are sorry to say the attendance of late at these meetings has fallen off, and we would earnestly urge upon all those who have the page 6 welfare of the poor and needy at heart to give us practical help in this branch of our work. The need is always greater during the winter months, and we trust we shall receive a hearty response to out appeal.

The amount of work done during the year will be seen by the following statement:—Meetings held, 41; average attendance, 8; garments made, 3G5. Donations;—new goods, 105; material, 29 yds.; second-hand garments, 506. Distributed;—new garments, 470; yards of material, 132½; quilts, 7; blankets, 6; second-hand garments,706.
