REHOBOTH BAZAAR. i For some months past the friends at Rehoboth C.M. Chapel have been busily i engaged preparing for a bazaar, the object of which was to reduce the debt on the chapel. The event was held on both Wednesday and Thursday in the Town Hall, and the i fact that the members and friends of the < church had been hard at work since the bazaar was first mooted was amply demon- strated by the appearance of the well-stocked stalls. The centre of the hall was occupied by the fancy work stall, and some excellent pieces of work were exposed for sale here. Near the stage was the refreshment stall, and close at hand was the fruit and flower stall, while at the other end was a gentleman's stall. Several attractions were provided, and the museum came in for a good share of patronage, 0 curios from all parts of the world being exhibited here. It might be stated that the work of erect- ing the stalls, painting various signs, and a host of other oddments, had been done free of any cost by members of the chapel. The opening ceremony on Wednesday was performed by Mr John Cunnah, before introducing whom, Rev. Ezra Jones explained the object of the bazaar. So far they had been very fortunate in securing assistance from many friends, and Mr Cunnah had supported them in a substantial way, having handed ia a cheque for £5 5/- (applause). Mr Cunnah said it gave him great pleasure to be among them that day inasmuch as the bazaar was in aid of a good cause. Some people were against bazaars, but, said Mr Cunnah, if they read the Bible more closely they would find that in the olden days Jews used to bring offerings to the house of God, so that bazaars of to-day were only a con- tinuation of that custom. After further remarks, Mr Cunnnh declared the bazaar open. Mr-Pennant Williams proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Cuanah, and also read a telegram from Mr Goronwy Jones who regretted his inability to be present at the opening ceremony. Mr Jones (Derwen) seconded the vote of thanks,and business was then proeeeded with. THURSDAY'S PROCEEDINGS. e The opening ceremony was performed by Mrs J. R. Jones (Derwen), and in introduc- ing the lady to the audience, Hev Ezra Jones spoke of how ready Mrs Jones always was to help any good cause. ( In the course of her remarks, Mrs Jones said that before performing the pleasing duty of opening the bazaar, she would like to refer to a few statistics connected with Rehoboth. The church cost £2000, and subsequently a piece of land was bought for J6450 a portion of which was sold for £ 200. Four years ago tUa place was entirely re-decorated, and a beautiful organ added, the total cost being J6600. To-day, however, the whole debt was only £ 1,100, so that when they considered the amount of the collections for the ministry, the connexion, etc., etc., they would agree that they had done very well (applause). The church had done, and continued doing, good work, so they could justly and confidently appeal for outside help. Rehoboth was an ornament to Prestatyn, and she appealed to them as citizens of a growing town to give a practical demonstration of their interest in the cause, for by so doing they would stimulate the church in her work. After further remarks Mrs Jones declared the Bazaar open. On the proposition of Mr H. R. Hughes, seconded by Mr Goronwy Jones, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mrs 1. Jones for the graceful way in which she had performed the ceremony. Rev Ezra Jones announced the receipt of a cheque for £ 3 3/- from Mrs Jones, and special mention was also made of Mr J. R. Jones and his friends for the trouble they had gone to in getting together an interesting collection of curiosities. The proceedings were enlivened on each day with musical items by Misses F., Jones, E. Wright, A. and D. Yeoman, Dilys Hughes, M. J. Hughes, and others. The arrangements had been carried out by a representative executive committee, Mr H. R. Hughes acting as treasurer, and Mr Pennant Williams very capably discharging the duty of hon. secretary. The proceeds for the two days amounted to £100. The general stall was in charge of Mrs Ezra Jones, Mrs Goronwy Jones, Mrs Pennant Williams, Mrs Lloyd Jones, Mrs G.W. Jones, Mrs Hughes, (Bank), Mrs J. R. Jones (Derwen), Mrs Edwards (Stanley House), Miss Roberts (Roslyn-tce), Mrs Thomas (Hafod Elwy), Mrs R. Williams (Roslyn-tce), Mrs Williams (2 Iaglan), Miss Jones (Cara- doc) Mrs" Hughes (Gronant house), Mrs Hughes (Chemist), Mrs Williams (Dyserth), and Miss Low.
