Raffle 1934-style

CDM 997.277.1

This following Card of Thanks appeared in the December 20, 1934 edition of the Comox Argus announcements:

“The Ladies Auxiliary of St. Joseph’s Hospital take this opportunity of extending their sincere thanks to Mr. F. Leyland for the beautiful cake he made and decorated for the Christmas raffle, also to Mr. Robertson and all those who helped make the raffle so successful.”

Sadly, follow-up research did not reveal a winner.

But it would have been a very nice prize to win at holiday time. The Master Bakery in Courtenay was selling decorated 5 lbs Christmas cakes for a whopping $2.25 each and they would special deliver it on Christmas eve.
