LITTLE RIVER CHURCH.
Afc last the vicarage is clear from debt The efforts of the Ladies' Guild have been crowned with success, and the parish owes them a lasting debt of thanks One hears legends of the first meeting of the guild, when the ladiea determined to do what they could to help the Vicarage Fund, and several of the present members have consistently werked year by year from then till now, putting into their sew ing, love for their Church and loyalty to their parish. The sale of work cleared the remaining £58, and this, during the present year of liberal giv ing and self sacrifice to war funds, ie wonderful. Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Patten have come down from Puaha week after week and given a grand example of consistent effort. Mrs J. Jon&s has been an energetic secretary, and kept things goiDg well. But when one begins to think of the individuals, name after name cornea to one's mind. Mrs Crockett, Mrs Gillman, Mrs Line Mrs Thompson, Mrs Reed. Mrs Priest, Mrs Joblin, Mrs Gilbert, have all been keen and good. Our thanks are due to them, Then, too, the G F.B have lent their aid and have helped won derfully to swell the total receipts Mrs F. Joblin has done, and ie doing, her work as secretary well. The G F S is giving valued help to the loesl patriotic society week by wetk, «Iso, and better still, they are going to begin the New Year by having a fortnightly Bible Glass in tha chinch, which the vicar is to lead. Lots of
other helpers made the sale of work go, Mr Baineg put up the stall for us, Miss Ooop, Miss M. Coop, and Mrg Galwfty, who came all the way from England to help ua, were working away hard. Mrs Anderson oame along from Kaituna end Mrs Parkinson, Mre Jamieeon and Mrs F. Ooop came too, Gifts oamo from all over the dietriot, and willing help was also given by Messrs Thompson, Giliman, Humphries, T Btanbury, Lewtbwsite and Aitken. Mrs 0, Field's efforts to build a ohuroh in Kartuna have gathered together a grand total of something over £202. She has worked nobly, and one hopes that soon a beautiful little ohurch may be raised to God's glory in that wonderfully beautiful little valley which after all, is God's. The total Iβ made up as follows:— £ a. d. Subscriptions paid in ... 64 11 7 Sale of Work, I. ... 80 0 0 „ „ II ... 44 14 9 Church offerings ... 27 13 0 Sals of cocksfoot ... 11 10 0 Interest 2 0 0 Unpaid subscriptions ... 22 6 0 The Kaituna Vestry met at last; and reoeived this rtporfc. They discussed fioanoe, which isn't very interesting, and have now to push on the church building.
