On this day … September 1922


The Advertiser, Friday, September 22, 1922, p.2.
An entertainment was held in the Kinglake Hall on Friday, September 15, the proceeds of which were in aid of the widow and child of the late Bert McDonald.
The concert, which was given by the Yarra Glen Minstrel troupe at their own personal expense, was a great success.
Mr Jenning, on behalf of the committee, moved a hearty vote of thanks for the kindness of the troupe and all present, as the weather was anything but satisfactory.
Mr Cary, responding on behalf of the troupe, said it gave them much pleasure to be able to help such a deserving cause.
During the evening pot plants, (gift of Mr Warner, Camberwell) were sold, £2 4d being realised.
There were also two raffles, one being a silver teapot (gift of D.. and W. Chandler) and a baby’s outfit (gift of Messrs Stent: and Corcoran)
They were won by Mr J. Hayes and Mr G. Mills respectively.
Dancing was continued till daylight, high-class music being supplied by the Yarra Glen jazz band and Miss Goldman (piano) and Mr Howard (violin);, with Mr Possilwaite a
capable M.C.
Much credit is due to all parties for the success of the evening.
Much commendation must be made to the, untiring and energetic manner in which Miss Exton carried out her duties as secretary. She was assisted by a hard-working committee, who also deserve great praise.

Another concert and ball is to be held in the near future for the same cause.
