Friday 11th June 1915

It was fine but dull. In the morning Willie & I got firewood and then went over to the farm orchard and dug until dinner time. In the afternoon I took some flowers down for Eddie Dunning to make butter holes. Then went down to the steamer, the timber and coire for the Church fence came up. There was a Concert and gift auction in the Hall in the evening in aid of the Hospital Ship for the wounded N.Z. soldiers. Willie & Grace went, but I am afraid it will be a frost as it came on a steady rain. I heard afterwards that it was a great success. A good number were present and that the total proceeds amounted to over £54.
