THE VERNON RIVER CONCERT.
From the Daily Examiner, Feb 5, 1896.
Those in town and country who risked the bad roads and attended the concert in the Vernon River Chapel last night were not disappointed in the rich musical treat prepared by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Doyle. The pretty chapel was comfortably filled with an appreciative audience, estimated at about four hundred. Though a few of the vocalists suffered from slight colds, every number was well rendered and many were enthusiastically encored. The genial pastor in his vocal selection had to respond to a second call and sang "Father O'Flynn." The Charlottetown and St. Dunstan's
College contingent sustained their reputation, and Miss Eliza O'Neill of Notre Dame Convent, received a warm welcome. The selections by the choir showed careful training under a good leader.
