"REHOBOTH" TEA AND CONCERT. The annual tea and concert held by the members attending Rehoboth" is ack- nowledged to be one of the most successful events of its kind held in Prestatyn, and this year's gathering, which took place on Thurs- day, fully upheld its past reputation. In fact the attendance on this occasion is believed to have beaten previous records. The tea was held in the schoolroom, and the number of guests was so large that they had to be accommodated in sections. The tables were very tastefully laid out, and the com- pany sat down to a most generous "spread." Space will not permit us to mention all responsible for the success of the gathering, for a considerable number of ladies had done excellent work: selling tickets, collecting "trays," providing goods, etc., and others again were most attentive to the needs of the guests we merely give, therefore, the names of the four ladies who presided at the tables Mrs Ezra Jones, Mrs Lloyd Ellis, Mrs Lewis (Garfield House), and Mrs R. Williams (Rosslyn Terrace). The concert held later on in the evening consisted principally of the performance of Dr Stainer's cantata The Daughter of Jairus by a choir of about fifty voices, amongst whom were many prominent local vocalists, the solo parts being sustained by Miss Florence Jones (soprano), Mr R. E. Williams (tenor), and the Rev W. Lewys Davies (bass). The organist was Mr G. W. Jones, under whose able leadership the cantata was most effectively rendered. In his address the chairman said he consi- dered it would be an unwarrantable infliction if he asked them to listen to any speech of his after the beautiful music they had been treated to that evening. He felt sure that he was expressing the feeling of all present when he said that they had had a musical treat of a very high order. The Rev Ezra Jones announced that a gentleman from Rhyl who was unable to be present had sent a guinea towards the funds. The rev. gentleman then proposed a hearty vote of thanks to all who had done their share in bringing the gathering to such a successful issue, including the chairman, and spoke of the sacred concert as being one of the best given in Prestatyn during the past 30 years. Mr H. R. Hughes seconded the Rev Ezra 0 Jones' remarks, and the vote was carried. Several miscellaneous items were then given Miss F. Jones contributing a solo There is a green hill and a violin piece Largo. Mr T H Jones' solo" Gwnewch i mi feddrod" was well rendered, as also was Jerusalem by Mr J. Williams, the Rev W. Lewys Davies giving also the bass solo Nazareth." An organ piece by Mr G. W. Jones completed the programme, and the audience dispersed after singing the doxology. The secretarial work connected with the tea and concert was undertaken by Messrs. T. H. Jones and J. T. Davies.
