Glee Club

Glee Club

The Club's fourth annual concert, which took place towards the end of October, 1910, was very successful. In the arrangements for the concert, and the dance which followed, the Glee Club was assisted by the Cricket Club, whose energetic members ensured the attendance of a numerous audience, and helped to make the dance a most enjoyable one. The Cricket Club's work resulted in an addition to the Club funds of a trifle over seven pounds. In the programme which the Glee Club rendered at the concert the standard of chorus work set in the past was certainly maintained; in fact, in the opinion of many it was raised.

In November the Club paid its annual trip to the Porirua Mental Hospital, where it endeavoured to amuse a large number of the inmates and officers of the Institution. In their usual generous manner our hosts provided supper for the visiting members, after which a pleasant little dance was held. Our tired but happy party returned to Wellington in "the wee sma' oors."

Once again we are in full swing, and prospects are good. Commencing with a satisfactory balance-sheet, a fairly strong membership and the able services of Mr. George Reid as conductor, a successful year is already ensured.
