Each baby received a prize whilst the mothers were presented with bouquets. The audience then sang “For They Are Jolly Good Fellows”.

The lucky note was won by Mr B White of Launceston. Mrs James of Longford won the guessing competition. The prize was a cake made by Mrs B Hill. Messrs Bob Burke and Horace Dickens kindly played for the dance.

Thanks are due to Mr V Burke doorkeeper and Mr Bratt for preparing the shed.
