Owing to the holidays the magazine is very late this month, so that this notice of a visiting priest for three sundays is almost too late. For the first three sundays in August the Rev. W.G.S. Snow, M.A., Rector of St Gabriel's, Govan, is to take duty. We hope he will have a very pleasant holiday among us. The east coast will be a great change from Clydeside, and the change will brace him up for his work in that very congested industrial area.

Meanwhile, your Priest-in-charge will be at the mouth of the Spey, mostly "tickling" the fish (if there are any) and not very far from Aberlour, which he hopes to visit .

In the past month there has been nothing of importance happening in the parish. At times it has been "all quiet," and we long to see more faces, some of whom we have almost forgotten about. No doubt, there have been good reasons for the many absences. But such absences make themselves felt financially, and we can only trust that this will be made good later.

The Mothers' Union outing on the 24th June seems to be a thing of the far distant past; but as the July magazine notes had been written before it came off, a note still is justified. Twenty-nine adults and ten children took part in this picnic, which was the most successful the M.U. has yet had. The weather was perfect, and the country was looking

at its best. The visit to Kirriemuir coincided with the funeral day of Sir James Barrie, and the party saw the funeral procession before proceeding up Glenisla to Kirkmichael

Some who took part have already bespoken their seat for next year!

The Sunday School picnic past off successfully on the 3rd July. The weather was most unpromising. But the rain kept off while the party was at the Laws. We are most grateful to Mr Sandeman for permission to visit the Laws after several years; and we are not unmindful of the kindness of the gamekeeper who very thoughtfully provided seats for the adults. And last, but not least, our warmest thanks are due to the friend, who, year after year, generously provides the means to give the children a happy picnic.

Two academic events of interest to the congregation took place in July. First, Miss Dorothy Gregory, daughter of our previous Priest-in-charge, was capped M.A. at St Andrew's University; secondly, Mr Stephen Hamilton Miller, nephew of Miss Miller, who recently left us for Aylth, received the M.D. degree at Aberdeen. Congratulations to both, and best wishes for their future career.

We are very grateful to Mrs Anderson for supplying the altar flowers during July. Mrs Jones kindly provides them in August, and Mrs Tyndall in September.
