PRESENTATION

 

A very pleasant gathering took place at "Ascot House," Ascot Vale, on Saturday evening, 4th December, when some 150 patients and friends of Nurse Ross tendered her a social evening to celebrate her silver wedding; also to bid farewell to Messrs. Ben. and Chas. Ross, who have joined the expeditionary forces. During the evening songs, dancing and recitations were indulged in, Miss Laura Bate being especially good in patriotic recitations. It was intended in the beginning to make the nurse a silver presentation, but donations came in so freely that she is now in receipt of a beautiful gold pulse watch. In making the presentation, Mr. Sanders said during the eight years Nurse Ross has been in the district she has always been kind and charitable, and, perhaps, many did not know how much so. There were ladies and gentlemen in the ballroom that night who had known the guest from her girlhood, and knew she was the woman to give her boys for the Empire's cause.

 

Mr. Chas. Ross responded on behalf of his mother and thanked the company for their beautiful presentation to her. His brother and he would always think kindly of them, and when far away would look back with pleasure to the pleasant evening spent at Ascot House.
