A meeting of the Woodville sub-branch of the Plunket Society was held on Monday afternoon, when there were present Mrs Horne, who occupied the chair, and Mesdames H. Galbraith, E. R. Grinlinton, Harding, P. H. Mules, Munro, Simpson, and L. J. Whittington (secretary). Apologies for absence were received from Mesdames N. M. Burnett, A. H. Hustwick, G. Knowles-Smith, W. Miller, and J. Mountfort.
Mrs Simpson was elected to the committee and cordially welcomed by the president. A vote of thanks was passed to the Woodville Co-operative social committee for donating the proceeds of one of their dances to the Society, also to the committee of the I.O. of Foresters for adding to the donation. Appreciative reference was made also to a competition provided by Mrs Nicholson, and a donation of 10/- from Mr Hustwick’s weighing machine.
In view of the fact that so many charitable organisations are in need of funds, it was decided not to hold a street stall this year, but two cakes will be offered for competition early in November.
Accounts to the amount of £12 16s 5d were passed for payment. The remits to the General Conference to be held in Wellington, commencing on 18th September, were read and discussed.
Nurse McDonald’s report for the last three months is as follows:-

A succession of very wet Mondays has caused the attendance to fall below the average.
