Orillia Packet & Times
Feb. 6th, 1894
The social got up by the ladies of Fair Valley church
congregation, held on the evening of the 31st , at the
house of Mr. David Calderwood’s, was a complete
success, not only in numbers but in a peouniary
sense. The object for which it was got up was fully
attained. After all had partaken of the abundant
supply of rich cakes and fragrant teas, the evening
was getting advanced, in consequence of which the
programme of the after proceedings was cut short,
being filled with readings by Mr. Geo. Reid and Mrs.
(R.v.R.K) Campbell, and a few pieces by the choir
led by the organist Miss Mary Lamb. Mr. William
Brown from Toronto, who is visiting at Mr. Reid’s,
added to the hilarity of the evening by his singing,
which pleased and greatly amused the young
Great credit is due to Mr. and Mrs.
Calderwood for their kindness in giving their fine
house for the occasion, and for their affability to
all. With no charge $20 was collected. The
remainder of the viands will be disposed of on the
evening of Wednesday next at the same place.
