Stanstead Women’s In­sti­tute

Stanstead Journal - - PUZZLES - Hat­ley

OurApril meet­ing was held at the home of Irene Humphrey, Mas­saw­ippi, on April 7th. Her home was nicely dec­o­rated for Easter. Pres­i­dent Phyl­lis opened the meet­ing and the seven mem­bers present re­cited the Col­lect, the Salute to the Flag and the Lord’s Prayer. Velma col­lected all monies due and told us that we have a sat­is­fac­tory bal­ance. Scotty read the min­utes from our March meet­ing. Elane told the group about her con­ver­sa­tion with Harry Is­brucker of the Stanstead His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. More news on that later. We wel­comed a new mem­ber to our group – Bar­bara He­witt, and we are all de­lighted to have her join us. It was a lengthy meet­ing as plans were made for those at­tend­ing the Que­bec Women’s In­sti­tute 100th An­niver­sary in June at Mac­don­ald Col­lege. Elane gave each mem­ber a sum­mary of bar codes and en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to buy prod­ucts from Canada or the U.S. – bar codes be­gin­ning with the num­bers 00 to 09. Fi­nal plans were made for our Spring Fling to be held at Eustis Hall on May 5th. The pro­gram was fi­nal­ized and the menu planned. In­vi­ta­tions are be­ing mailed this week to the other lo­cal Women’s In­sti­tute branches. The meet­ing was ad­journed by Win­nie Wright. Irene, as­sisted by Jackie Til­ton, served a tasty lunch of crack­ers, cheese and a de­li­cious cake. We will meet again on May 9th to de­cide what to make as a cen­ter­piece for the con­ven­tion.
