Thursday 7th June 1917

It was a very fine day. In the morning I was cutting tea tree where Arthur Greenwood is ploughing. In the afternoon I was fixing up under the house to keep the fowls out of the garden. In the evening there were two meetings in the Library which Willie and I attended. The first was the Annual Meeting to elect a Hall Committee. The old Committee with the addition of Mr Neeley were elected. The gross receipts were £37.17.2 and the expenditure £11.7.0 leaving a balance in hand of £26.7.2. The earnings of the Hall for use during the year was £10.4.6. There was also a meeting afterwards of the Farmers & Fruitgrowers Association. The Fruitgrowers present decided to form a new association without the name “Farmers”. Mr J.C. Wyatt was appointed President and Mr D.M. Glass Secretary & Treasurer.
