Newspaper Article – A Hearty Send-off



The “afternoon” tendered Mrs H. P. Horne, Mayoress of Woodville, in the Parish Hall on Monday, by the Women’s Institute, proved a most enjoyable function. The President (Mrs J. S. Nelson) occupied the chair, and there was a large attendance of members. Mrs Nelson, in a happy little speech, wished Mr and Mrs Home a very pleasant trip to Honolulu. Miss Brenda Jaine presented Mrs Home with a handsome bouquet of autumn-tinted flowers.

Mrs Horne, on behalf of the Mayor and herself, tendered her sincere thanks for the good wishes expressed, and for the honour done her by members of the Institute.

During the afternoon, songs were rendered by Mesdames Schroder and Keay and Miss F. Giles, while two humorous recitations were given by Mrs A. H. Vile. Various games and competitions were also indulged in. Afternoon tea was partaken of, and the gathering concluded with the singing of “Auld Lang Syne.”
