100 Years Ago: Christ Church A.Y.P.A. Holds Red Cross Shower

The Intelligencer February 28, 1918 (page 7)

“Christ Church, A. Y. P. A. The members of Christ Church A. Y. P. A. held a Red Cross shower in the Parish Hall, Wednesday, Feb. 27. There was a large attendance and a large number of parcels containing smokes, candies, etc., were collected, which will be sent overseas to the boys.

A guessing competition as to what the contents of the parcels were gave some amusement. Mr. Harold Barrett rendered several solos, his rendering of ‘Thora’ being very fine. A couple of guitar solos were given by Mr. Herbert Wolfe and Miss Kathleen Diamond accompanied on the piano. Refreshments were served at the close of the meeting.”
