SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.

 

The parishioners of St. Brendan’s Church, Moorooka, organised a successful fete, which was held at Dara on Saturday afternoon. Several artistically decorated stalls and various amusements were arranged on the grounds, which were specially illuminated In the evening The opening ceremony was performed by Archbishop Duhig, who was introduced to the gathering by Father Gallagher. Archbishop Duhig briefly referred to the fact that it was the first occasion on which a fete had been held in the grounds of Dara, and he hoped it would not be the last, for he would be willing to lend them at any time for functions of a similar kind. Ho spoke of the church at Moorooka, which had been erected two years ago at a cost of £2,000, and expressed the hope that the financial result of the fete would help a great deal towards reducing the debt which now existed on the building. At night a programme of music was given by the members of the Hibernian Band. The stalls and convenors were: Sweets, Miss M. Moloney; fancy, Miss N. Freeney; fruit, Mr. J. Freeney; refreshments, Mrs. H. Steel. The arrangements for the fete were carried out by a committee of Iadies and gentlemen, with Mr. J. E. Curley as honorary secretary.
