Flashback: On this day in Gladstone
1931: A very pretty wedding was solemnised at the Roman Catholic Church, Mt Larcom on December 15, when Colin Percival, second son of Mr and Mrs RG Joyner, and Mary Satara (Mollie), eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs E Healy, Mt Larcom, were married.
The church was tastefully decorated by the Misses Butcher, friends of the bride.
The Misses Catherine and Myrtle Healy, sisters of the bride, acted as bridesmaids, and they were daintily frocked alike in pale pin crepe de Chine.
The bouquets were made and presented to the bride and bridegroom by Mr Tom Carroll.
Mr J Jackson was best man, and Mr N Kiorgaard was groomsman.
After the ceremony, the bridal party motored to Belmont, the residence of the bride's parents, where the wedding breakfast was partaken of.
The presents were costly, including several cheques.
1953: Gladstone Bowling Club: Mr Arthur Friend presented an honour board - a very fine piece of furniture of polished cedar and maple with the club's name prominently shown in silver ash lettering and surmounted by a cedar bowl.
Past-president, Walter Ferris, also presented a wall case of Australian and New Zealand club badges, always of interest especially to visiting bowlers.
