I don't know where you want your line "Midday... to end up, but the
easiest way I can think of is to insert a couple of \vfill's in the
appropriate places, e.g.:

line one\break
line ten\break

will centre your 10 lines and put Midday... at the bottom. Else put the
\vfill after the Midday line to centre your (10 lines +Midday line),
else put \vfill's in both places to provide equal space from the top to
your 10 lines and another equal space to Midday..., else...

Does this help?
