VICTORIA, B. C.
PRESIDENT'S REPORT
Ladies and Gentlemen:
It gives me great pleasure to be able to report the B. C.
Protestant Orphans' Home in good condition at the end of this
year. During 1923 we have done a considerable amount of work
at the Home. Last year we were under the impression that the
heating plant was sufficiently large to heat the building so as
to make it quite comfortable; but owing to the very severe
weather we experienced last winter we found it would be necessary to make further additions in order to have it in first-class
condition. Your Committee, therefore, decided to install a new
boiler and further radiation; this has just been completed, and
we have every reason to think the Home will be quite comfortable
this winter.
Your Committee has also installed a 200-gallon storage tank
and jacket heater, capable of giving sufficient hot water for all
baths, so that it will not be necessary to carry hot water upstairs
from the kitchen for this purpose.
The cost for the installing of the additional furnace, the
covering of the pipes, and the boiler for hot water amounted to
twelve hundred and seventy-five dollars ($1,275.00). We have
also given instructions to have the old stable reshingled.
Your managers again wish to thank the Ladies' Committee
for the good work it has accomplished during the year, and to
express  our appreciation of its assistance and  co-operation.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
J. A. SAYWARD,
President. *u^
PROTESTANT ORPHANS' HOME
Report of President of Ladies' Committee
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Protestant
Orphans' Home Committee:
The Ladies' Committee begs to submit the following report:
It is with gratitude to God that we close our present year of
service for Him, although in a small way, we hope it may be
acceptable.
We are thankful to report very little sickness among the
children during the year and, except for a few cases of measles,
the health of the little inmates has been good. One of the boys
had the misfortune to break his leg, but under the care of Dr.
Bryant, was soon around again. Another little boy has been
confined to the Jubilee Hospital for some months, and is still
very ill indeed.
Twenty-one children have been received in the Home during
1923, and 26 left during the same period.
The children have attended church each Sunday morning
when the weather permitted, also attended Sunday School at
the  Centennial Methodist  Church.
The older ones are attending the North Ward School, and
the younger ones are enrolled with the resident teacher, Miss
Miller. Very satisfactory progress has been made, thirteen
honour rolls being presented to different scholars at midsummer.
All are well dressed, bright and happy.
Under the kindly and capable supervision of the Matron, Mrs.
Harris, and her able assistants, Mrs. Street and Miss Richardson,
everything about the Home has been kept in perfect order and
spotlessly clean;   also most economically conducted.
Some necessary work has been done in the dormitories—
castors put on beds and cots needing them, mattresses renovated,
and blinds put on the nursery and other windows.
Several carpet squares have been donated, which make the
rooms look much more cheerful and comfortable. New table
oilcloth has been purchased, curtain material, pillow-casing,- cups
and saucers, etc. ANNUAL REPORT
9
Through the generosity of the late Mr. A. B. Fraser, $25.00
worth of utensils have been placed in the kitchen.
No tag-day was held this year, as several donations in cash
have been received either directly or through the Community
Chest.
In September the Annual Pound Party was held, when over
$400.00 in cash and many articles were donated. Citizens who
had not been interested before, sending generous gifts, the Agricultural Fair sending heaps of fruit and vegetables as usual.
The furnace recently installed is proving a great satisfaction,
and is keeping the Home warm and comfortable all over.
We regret to report our loss in the death of one of the
former members, Mrs. Munsie, who passed away in March last.
Mrs. Munsie had been a faithful member for 28 years, and,
although not an active one for the last few years, never lost
interest in the welfare of the Home.
Many societies have remembered the Home during the year,
among them, the G.W.V.A., Kumtuks Club, Shriners' Band,
I.O.O.F., Liberal Association. Rotary Club (who gave six of
the bqys a week at the Junior Y. Boys' Camp at Beaver Lake),
Cordova Bay Recreation Club, Elks Club, Girls' Corner Club,
King's Daughters, Junior Circle of Duncan, Native Daughters,
St. George's School. Organized Societies of the different city and
district churches, Order of the Eastern Star, Ladies of the Maccabees, David Spencer Ltd., Kirkham & Co., Mr. S. R. Newton,
Mr. Richards, Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey Baynes (Albert Head),
Mr. Denham, for standing passes to the Royal Victoria Theatre.
Special mention should be made of the thoughtfulness and
time devoted to the pleasure of the children by Cameron &
Calwell, who so many times sent their tally-ho to convey them
to and from different places of amusement, and to Mrs. Cassidy,
who so often sold flowers on the city streets and with the proceeds bought ice cream, and to Mr. Joe North for the many treats
he provided, to Drs. F. M. Bryant and Lewis Hall for professional
services, and to the daily papers, The Times and The Colonist.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
