Mr. Johnstone See Foy. with a request that it be hung in the board room as a mark of appreciation for the services rendered by Mr. See Foy during the celebrations.

"Mr. See Poy performed notable service during the "Back to Innis- fail celebrations, and I think lt is highly fitting he should be given some recognition by the committee and supporters of that organisa- tion.
"Mr. See Poy is a son ot the first storekeeper at Innisfail and as he, like his late father, has done so much to promote the interests of this town and district, lt is there- fore only appropriate that his por- trait should bang In close proxi- mity to that of another notable pioneer, the late Rev. Father Clancy."
