AN APPEAL FOR WORKERS
Though we may live in a Welfare State the voluntary work of such activities as Longwood Sing is still as great as on the day on which this Festival was inaugurated. Many deserving organisations receive no help at all from the State, and it is with the intention of helping some of these in Our own small way that we appeal for more workers to carry on this noble and charitable tradition at Longwoodi. The time it takes is small; the benefits it creates are great. Particularly we appeal to the younger persons of the district to sacrifice a few hours of their leisure time each year.
If anyone should be interested in joining our ranks please contact any committee member or official, they will be pleased to give you details of the small duties which it entails.
R. MASSEY, Hon. Secretary.
The Officers and Committee wish to thank all those good people who have worked and donated to make our Sing a success in 1957, and earnestly solicit your undiminished support again this year.
