On Friday, 20th' Sept., 1907. the Otatara schoblhouse presented a scene of lively enjoyment, the bachelors of the district having spent time and energy in arranging an agreeable social and dance. Despite the inclemency of the weather the residents turned out in full force, and the building-, which had been tastefully decorated with evergreens and springflowers by Messrs Fred Morton and E. Metcalfe,, was comfortably filled. Dancing commenced at 8 p.m., and was indulged in until 4.30 a.m. During the evening songs were rendered by Mrs Benson, Messrs Swan, Smith, Durham, Chrush, Bergerman, a- recitation by Mr Fox, and a neatly executed step dance by Mr Berger an was greatly appreciated. The energetic secretary and M.C.. (Mr D. Gordon), ably assisted by Mr Fred Morton, seemed untiring in their efforts to give everyone present a fair share of enjoyment. A word of praise is also clue to the musicians (Mr \V. Morion and Mr J. Chrush), who fulfilled their duties in a pleasing and thoroughly satisfactory manner. The supper, which was supplied by Messrs Kingsland and Son in their usual excellent style, was done ample justice to, and the gathering was unanimously voted one erf the best ever held in the district.
