MUNICIPAL BAND. The above band, which was organised just two years ago, will next month make its first effort at contesting-. For some months past the members have . been practising assiduously under Mr Glennie, and intend to leave no stone unturned to bring credit to the town as well as to themselvesI—they 1 —they have given uf> all other engagements. and a re attending practices six nights a week. That the band has worked hard since its formation is shown by the fact that in two years they have secured a full set of Hawke's instruments, which cost over £.400, and which was> paid off some time ago ; and 84 uniforms costing £IBO, the filial payment of which will be made shortly. As the band is a self-supporting institution, and relies solely on engagements and the members’ monthly subscriptions, for its income, which is quite inadequate to meet current expenses-, it is necessary from time to time to appeal to the public for assistance. On Monday evening next at 7.80 a grand spectacular display will be given in the Queen's Park, when the baud will be assisted by the Pipe Band, who leave for Christchurch on the following day to compete at the X.Z. Athletic meeting's pipe contest, and who will render their test music. The Fire Brigade will also give an exhibition of the events in which they are competing at the great lire brigade demonstration, which will be held at Christchurch in March. The Maxim gun team front the Oreti Rifles will also give a display of gtiit drill with the deadly little, weapon, which fires six hundred shots a minute. The lest music for the great International Fxhibition Contest will also be rendered by the baud, which, with the other events, should make a very enjoyable evening. A small charge will be made for admission, and the band solicits the patronage of all wishing to spend a pleasant evening, who will at the same time be assisting this well-deserving body.
