Highly sucessful from every point of view was the picnic on Saturday in McEvoy's Grove in aid of St. John's Church, Osgoode. Busses convoyed the large attendance from Ottawa while the surrounding communities yielded a big crowd, also. The ladies of St. John's parish were responsible for the very enjoyable high tea served at six o'clock. Rev. Father A. Gorman, the popular parish priest of St. John's arranged an excellent programme of sports in which the younger members of the community joined.
A baseball game that aroused much interest was played between Osgoode Station and Kenmore, the former team winning by seven to three. They recived a handsome trophy donated by Dr. J. G. Montgomery, Ottawa. The tug of war was won by a team of married men who were successful against the team of single men.
Other interesting events were as follows:
