Glee Club

"God giveth speech to all, song to the few."

Glee Club

This year the Glee Club has begun with a full membership and promises to do good work. There are not so many male voices as we should like but the few faithful possessors are enthusiastic. Indeed if all the members continue this year as they have begun, the club should have a very successful year. At the beginning of the year, Miss Clachan who has been for several years connected with the Glee Club, resigned her position as conductor. We feel we owe much to her, and would like to take this opportunity of thanking her for her untiring work, especially during the past year.

The Club bid fair to collapse this year for the want of someone willing to undertake the position of conductor, but at last Mr. F. P. Wilson kindly consented to fill the position.

At the end of last year the club gave a concert at Trentham Camp, and also its annual concert at Porirua Mental Hospital, where the programme was much enjoyed by the inmates. At the close of the concert our party was entertained at supper by the staff, after which a dance was held in the big hall.

Towards the end of this term we propose to give a concert in the gymnasium, and possibly one at Trentham.
