Concert Tour Oxford Orphanage Sing
ing Class.
The singing class of 1911 from the
Oxford Orphanage will start on the first
or Eistern concert tour on Thursday,
March 2, The first tour will close in 8
or 10 weeks, and after a brief rest a
second tour will begin.
These annual concerts have reached a
really high standard of excellence. The
children and those who accompanv them
represent a cause very near to the
hearts of our peopU. Even if the tour
and entertainments were not in the in
terest of a great work, the character
of the concerts would merit large and
liberal patronage. An admission fee is.
as a rule, charged and for tins the
children certainly give full value and
moro.
The funds brought to tiiis institution
through these tours help much in its
maintenance. Today it is providing for
330 children, and since it was est iblith
ed in 18'2, by the Grand Lodge of Ma
sons of North Carolina, more than 2,600
it iris nd boys have come directly under
its blessed ministry. Never have tin
benefits of this noble institution been
restricted to the children of Masons.
