A WEEK IN LANDSBOROUGH April 1925

Landsborough Memorial Hall
On Saturday, 4th April, the Memorial Hall Committee held a successful euchre party and dance . The euchre tables were well patronised. and the prizes were won by Mrs. Guymer and Jack Donnelly. The consolation prizes went to Mrs. Sebbbens and Eric Hancock. Mr. H. Dye supplied the music, and Mr. Fred Heritage carried out the duties of MC , During the evening a pair of ducks were raffled and won by Miss O’Desly. The chocolate waltz was won by W. Manthy. A mystery box competition was held, and Mrs. Manthy, Miss Ivy Batchelor, and Mr. Ron Rickaby all guessed correctly — a pair of slippers — and on drawing for the prize Mr. R. Rickaby was successful. The Memorial Hall
will benefit by a neat little sum as a result of the effort.

Mr. Ted Tytherleigh had a narrow escape from breaking his arm whilst cranking a Ford truck. The handle flew back and caught him on the wrist. The Ambulance rendered first aid and conveyed the patient to Beerburrum, where the arm was found to be badly
bruised.

The Enterprise Sawmill changed hands during Easter, Mr. P. Imberger. who erected the mill, purchasing it from Mr. Wilde.

On Easter Saturday the Palmwoods Jazz Band paid a visit to Landsborough and conducted a jazz in the Memorial hall. Unfortunately a large number of people were away on holidays, and only a medium crowd assembled. Nevertheless, those present speak of a good time, and no doubt the Palmwoods Jazz Band will be heard again in Landsborough at an early date.

A large number of residents journeyed to Caloundra during Easter This popular seaside place Is badly hampered by the shocking stats of the roads. Practically every car that travelled, to
Caloundra had the pleasure of being bogged.

is being arranged for the afternoon, and a plain and fancy dress and poster ball at night.
