dist church will take place at Hill
Crest Hall, Great Chebeague, Thurs
day, August 13, from 3 to 5 p. ni. and

one of the social events of the season
and this year it gives promise of be

success of the affair will exceed any
fair conducted by this worthy organiza
tion. The ladies are trying to realize
the sum of two hundred and fifty dol
lars this year and while this is a
much larger amount than they usually
secure, they feel that with the co-oper
ation of all the people they will easily
accomplish their desires. All the
people on the islands in years past
nave ueen most gracious in assisting
by either the purchasing of admission
tickets, donations of articles, food, etc.,
or as a great many prefer, to attend
and patronize the different tables. The
committee will be most grateful for
donations for any of the different
tables and will call for the same if
notified. The following are in charge
of the tables, Domestic table, Mrs.
Aaron Cleaves, Mrs. Bertrand Dough
ty; Food table, Mrs. John Rose;
Punch table. Miss Mattie Littlefield;
Flower table, Miss Clara Webster;
Candy table, Mrs. Winfield Hamilton,
Mrs. Martin 13. Hamilton; Pink table,
Mrs. R. J. Thompson; Dutch counter,
Miss Marie Robbins and assistants.
Tea table. Misses Albion; Ice cream
table, Mr. B. J. Thompson and Mr.
John Rose. There are numerous
fairs held annually at the various is
lands of the bay, which are always
generously patronized by the liberal
members of the summer resident col
ony, and this fair is the one Che
beague is proud of, as it represents
an immense amount of work, and is
always well ^ttapderi and , natfonizef',
