NOTES
Timaru Herald, 24 July 1909 A progressive euchre party and dance were held in the Victoria hall, Winchester, on Thursday evening, in aid of Mr John Bill, the recent sufferer by the disastrous fire at Eltham. Mr Bill and his family were for many years resident near Winchester. There were 60 present and the prize winners were Miss Campbell and Mr Elkis. A dance was held afterwards at which the musicians were Messrs Roddick and Hergan, with Mr J. Cripps as M.C. The takings were 6 (July 2013 equivalent of $971), a very pleasing result for the promoters, Messrs J. Wilks, J. Cripps and J. Farrell

Taranaki Herald, 6 August 1909 Yesterday afternoon, in the Sports Ground, a team from the Fire Brigade played a team nominally composed of butchers and bakers, but really consisting of Star Club seniors and juniors in a match arranged as a 'benefit' to Mr J.
