CHILDREN'S TREAT

On Thursday, January 18th, the children attending the Sabbath School of the West Coast Mission, held their annual social evening in the School. After engaging in Prayer and Hymn singing, the company were entertained to songs by the children and a varied programme of gramophone selections, both in English and Gaelic. Thereafter, the youngsters sat down to tea, tastefully prepared by Mrs. Cameron. As on former occasions, the Secretary of the West Coast Mission showed his practical interest in the welfare of the children, by sending a supply of cake, etc. and to him and to the ladies who helped to make the entertainment a success, cordial thanks are tendered.
