The 43rd annual ball of the Westmeath Men’s Social and Benevolent Association will take place on Saturday evening, November 25, at Yorkville Casino, 210 East 86th Street. Preparations began in earnest at their last meeting at Central Opera House, 67th Street and Third Avenue.
The “Miss Westmeath” popularity contest for the round trip ticket to Ireland, donated by Bernard J. Troy, has aroused great enthusiasm. Every fair daughter of Westmeath is either a contestant or is pulling wholeheartedly for some of her friends, with result that a very close and exciting contest is assured. A committee has been appointed, of which Christopher Murray is chairman and Patrick Mackin, secretary. Other members on the committee are John Smith, James Gavin, Andrew Coyne, Michael Carolan, Matthew Delahaunty, Joseph P. Horan, John Kelly and Christopher Duffy. A very important meeting will be held on Friday evening, October 6.
