      THE PARKINSON FAMILY.
      Mr, G. H. Parkinson, of the Armi-
      dale Motors Ltd., who is about to
      join the. stuff of an Ipswich firm, was
      with Mrs. and Miss Parkinson, given a
      send-off by the congregation of the,
      Armidale Methodist Church, in the
      school hall on Thursday night. The
      family has been closely identified with
      the activities of the church for nearly
      thirty years. Eulogistic reference was
      made to their valuable help in the vari
      ous deparlincnls of the church life,
      special mention being made of Mr.
      Parkinson's work us choir librarian
      and Mrs. Parkinson's efforts as secre
      tary of the garden fete and similar
      functions.
      The Rev. R .J. Williams, who pre-
      sided over the large gathering, con=
      gratulated the guest on his preferment
      and expressed the hope that they
      would lie very happy in Queensland
      and would soon gel into harness in the
      church life of the Northern State.
      During the evening a programme of
      music was supplied by Misses Plastow,
      Booth, and Mavis Hell, and Messrs.
      Mead and Williams, with the aid of
      Mrs. Buckler at the piano.
      On behalf of the congregation, Mr.
      Williams presented Mr. and Mr Par-
      kinson with a handsome timepiece of
      inlaid wood, suitably inscribed. He
      said it would serve lo remind them of
      many happy hours spent in Armidale,
      and he hoped it would mark off many
      more in Queensland. They were the
      kind of workers who rejoiced a mlnls-
      lers' heart, for they were always
      counted upon to do their work faith=
      fully and cheerfully. Mr. Parkinson
      was also the recipient of a Swan
      fountain pen at the hands of Mr. Nay-
      lor, on behalf of the choir. He said
      the music of the choir was the envy
      other choirs, for the whole £40 worth
      had been carefully bound in strong
      covers by the librarian himself, and
      would last for many years.
      As vice-president of the Ladies'
      Church Aid, Mrs. Williams presented
      Mrs. Parkinson with a Pyrex casserole
      dish, in a silver stand, as a recognition ,
      of many years of service as secretary I
      of the society.
      Miss Ivy Parkinson, who has been a
      teacher in the Sunday School, as well
      as a soloist in the choir, was given a
      pretty leather handbag by Mr. James
      Moore, on behalf of the Sunday School,
      where he said Miss Parkinson had
      graduated from the infants' class to
      the post of teacher. Miss Addle Nettle
      then gave her a glass vase, on behalf
      of the Girls' Comradeship, of which
      she had been a foundation member.
      Mr. Parkinson acknowledged the
      gifts and good wishes. He had been
      very happy in his association with the
      choir and congregation, he said, and
      expected lo find a similar sphere up
      north. He would feel lost if he were
      out of touch altogether with church
      work, He hoped the choir would
      continue to grow in numbers and effi-
      ciency, as he had seen it grow from
      small beginnings to its present
      strength.
      Refreshments were served, and a
      very happy function brought to a close
      with the Benediction.

      A pleasing function took place at the
      Armidale Motors Ltd., when Mr. G.
      Parkinson was presented with a handsome
      solid-leather travelling bag. The
      managing director (Mr. H. J. Court),'
      on behalf of the firm and the employees.
      made the presentation, and Mr. F.
      Shuttlewood also spoke; Reference
      was made to his long association with
      the firm and to the loyal services rendered.
      Mr. Parkinson expressed his
      thanks and regretted his departure
      from Armidale. He had decided to go
      to Queensland mainly for family reasons.
