Presentation is made at Friendship Hour
Ralph Burke R.C.N.V.R. Honoured
by Reaboro Church
A very happy Friendship Hour was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H.G. Burke, on Sunday evening last by the congregation of Reaboro Baptist Church.
During the evening Sto. 1 Burke, R.C.N.V.R. of Kingston was presented with a lovely brush and comb set and a sman [smart] edition of the New Testament. The address was read by the pastor, Mr. Alvin Porteous and the presentation was made by Lorne Thurston. Ralph made a neat reply in appreciation of the gift and of the warm Christian fellowship of his many friends, Ralph expects to be posted to Cornwallis N.S.
A quaint air of happy comradeship prevailed throughout the evening when an impromptu program was enjoyed with Keith Morden, pianist, Gordon Burke, trumpeter and Bob Reeds assisting in various ways.
