Afterwards in the afternoon picnic sports were held at the recreation ground . Dame Enid Lyons opened the sports and was accompanied by the Warden Cr E E Poke. Mr V Brown was on the microphone and was aided by Mr Allan Brown who kept the events running like clockwork. These events were followed at night by a bonfire, pictures at the High School, a dance and an Amateur Hour. It was a busy day.
