Capel Mawr Competitive Meeting.


Capel Mawr Competitive Meeting. ANOTHER SUCCESS. The second annual Literary and Musical Competitive Meeting in connection with the Capel Mawr Sunday School was held on Christmas Day. This meeting was inaugu- rated last year in place of the usual sacred concert at Capel Mawr, and has fully justi- fied its existence. Last year only one meeting was held (in the evening), but owing to the popularity of the venture, two meetings had to be held this year. The meetings onTuesday were very well attended and at both meetings the hall was packed, a large number of people failing to gain ad mis- sion at the evening meeting. The stage had been nicely decorated for the occasion, anclo looked quite cosy. The afternoon meeting was presided over by the Rev. Evan Jones, whilst the ehair in the evening was taken by M r Robert Owen, J.P., Mayor of Den- bigh, who both delivered appropriate addresses during the meetings. At inter- vals daring the day Miss Laura Evans (Mrs R T Williams, London) greatly de- lighted the audience with her renderings, for which she was heartily applatddd, aud to which she bad perforce to give enoores after every time she sang. The chairman of the committee was Mr George Jones, Park street, senior superin- tendent of the Sunday School the treasur- er was Mr T Andrew Roberts, Brynhyfryd whilst the secretarial duties were wHl ca?. ried out by Mr John Roberts, Temple Bar and Mr Thomas Williams, Lawnt.
