Ryan Public meeting
5 September 1919 Albury Banner and Wodonga Express
A public meeting was held recently to arrange for welcoming Pte. Ryan, V.C., who is to arrive shortly.
A letter from Mr. Crook, East Blowering school teacher, asked that that centre be given the opportunity of co-operating, as Pte. Ryan was a pupil of that school. The request was acceded to.
It was decided that a children's afternoon be held in the park, also a dinner at 7 o'clock p.m. in O'Brien's hall, when a wallet of notes will be presented the hero.
The reception committee was offered the right to present a medal to Pte. Ryan on that day if they so desired.
