I Welcome Home. + 1 PARK CHURCH AND ITS ROI L OF HONOUR. Park Church on Tuesday evening ex- tended a warm welcome home to those of its members who have returned to civil life again, after having served their country in the great war. In all, no fewer than 117 members of the Church and Sunday School went on active service ;nd d these, 15 laid down their liv'. iknh. tho Church and Sunday kept in dose L,.ci with all tu "ooys" throughout the war period, and the ladies' committee and other friends organized the despatch of periodical parcels of comforts, etc., to them. That these gifts were appreciated was shown by the let- ters of acknowledgment from the re- cipients, all testifying to their feelings of gratitude that they were not forgotten by the friends at Park. The gathering on Tuesday was attended by most of the lads who have been de- mobilized, and they were entertained to tea for which elaborate preparations had been made by the wives of the deacons assisted by a large number of lady helpers. The Hall had been beautifully decorated for the occasion and presented a charming appearance. After tea, a very enthusiastic meeting was held presided over by the pastor, Ecy. Roes Griffiths, M.A., who extended to the boys a very warm welcome back to the church. Mr. Griffiths paid an eloquent tribute to the spirit of patriot- ism which had inspired them to place all on the altar of their country. Now that they had been spared to return home, he Sloped that the same spirit would animate them in the larger sphere of Christian work which was open to them. Addresses were also given by Mr. 7?obert Stuart, church secretary; Mr. D. c h iirc, D Gwilym Williams, church treasurer; and Mr. Willis Jones, leader of the Bible Class. Mr. Harry Evans, J.P. (High Sheriff), who in conjunction with Mr. Evan Jones, ?ay View, was superintendent of the -Sunday School when most of the boys .1ol?,ic d up, idded joined up, also added a few words of wel- come. The roll of honour was then read by Mr. Walter T. John, secretary of the Sunday School, after which each of the boys present was handed a beautiful leather pocket wallet suitably inscribed. The gifts were handed over by Mrs. Dd. Williams, Miss Griffiths, Miss Palmer, and Mr. Fred Thomas. Mr. Geo. Clark Williams responded on behalf of his com- rades.
