Bachelors' Club. PROPOSED BACHELORS' BALL AT BURBAWANG. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 April 1901

Bachelors' Club; PROPOSED BACHELORS' BALL AT BURRA WANG. What a prosperous career is in store for the newly formed Bachelors' Club. The eccouraging reports received at the adjourned meeting held at Wilde's Meadow on Saturday evening surpassed the most sanguine expectations of the promoters. On recount ing the promising state of affairs, the committee lost very little in unanimously deciding on May 1st as the date of their first ball. The success of this   function is undoubted, for dances away back in the country, amongst the farmers and dairymen always " catch on," and prove enjoyable in the extreme. There is an apparent air of freedom for the buxom young maidens put pride into their pockets and mix up with the sterner sex indiscrimately; and enter into the terpsichorean twirls with that zest and en thusiasm symbolical only of'our country lassies.
