Report for 1951 - the 78th
Dear Friends,
We present our report of the 78th “Sing",
And once again set it in verse,
For some of us think of the smile it may bring,
(While others remark “I've seen worse !)
But whether we give it in prose or in song,
The meaning is there j ust the same,
No matter how given, it cannot be wrong,
To give to the old and the lame !
And that is our aim, folks to do our good deed,
To give you good music, - Good cheer,
That you will enjoy it, and help us exceed The record we set up last year !
Figures are dull things, but neverthless,
We look at our statement with pride,
And all we can say, folks, - (Perhaps you can guess?) is Thank you - well done folks, - you’ve tried !
i AMES HEBBLETHWAITE, President
HUBERT DAWSON, Treasurer.
L. CROWTHER, Secretary.
