Social at Penygroes. I


Social at Penygroes. I A grand social was held at the Council Schools, Penygroes, on New Year's EJ, under the auspices of the ladies' section of the Penygroes Reception Committee. A large crowd assembled, in fact the crowd at the opening was more than the building could comfortably hold. The opening ceremony was very ably performed by Mrs. D. F. Davies, Cross Hands, who was called upon at almost a moment's notice to perform this pleasing function. Mrs. Davies acquitted herself most creditably, and there is no doubt that after the excellent manner in which this social was opened that we shall see many of the ladies emulating Mrs. Davies, imitation being the smcerest form of shewing their appreciation. At the opening, Mrs. Clutterbuck, president of the Ladies' Committee, introduced Mrs. Davies to the audience, after which a lovely bouquet of flowers was presented to l\1rs. Davies by Miss E. Griffiths. Mrs. Morgan, Bryncwar, the treasurer, proposed a vote of thanks to Mrs. Davies for her presence, and Miss A. M. Rees, the secretary, seconded, and the social was then formally opened. Mr. Edwards, of Ammanford, had charge of the games, and the merry company were soon thoroughly enjoying themselves. Mr. Edwards also rendered a few monologues during the evening. A real fortune teller was in attendance; and a popular menagerie, con- ducted by Mr. David Mainwaring. Mr. G. Davies, Mr. H. Evans, and Mr. D. Davies, all of Penygroes, was one of the side-shows. The genera! opinion of this show was that, apart from the 3d. worth of fun, it was very edifying. One of the rooms had been laid out for dancing, and a good number thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the terpsichorean art. The refreshment room was a sight not equalled since pre-war day;, there being a plentiful supply of toothsome delicacies. The tea- room attendants were Mrs. Child, Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Morgan, Bryncwar, Mrs. Clutterbuck, Mrs. Nicholas, Miss Jenkins, Mrs. T. Hughes, Mrs. C. Emanuel, Miss G. Enoch, Miss E. Williams. Miss M. Davies, and others. The ladies i,rir!ertook to do all they possibly couL v. Uncut the aid of the men, but perforce had to call in Mr. Wm. Morgan to look after the boiling of water, and Messrs. T. Morgan, G. Bancroft, O. Morgan and Wm. Roberts to attend to the doors jf the various rooms. It is next to impossible to collect such a large assembly of people and please all, and no doubt a few may ¡"d ¿; satisfied but we feel that the majority' of those who attended enjoyed ,iei. ;2s thoroughly. When we corr-Mer the low price the low pr lee of admission, which was only sixpence, the promoters are to be congratulated on providing such a treat at such a ridiculously low figure.
