Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Austin

part in a Walkathon to raise funds for the Q.W.I. Lise Des­boise – past co-owner with her hus­band of Honey Bee­hives – had kept the lo­cal neigh­bours sup­plied with de­li­cious honey. She gave a most in­ter­est­ing Agri­cul­tural re­view about the his­tory, rais­ing and fi­nally hav­ing to give up their “hobby”. We learned many facts about bees that were not known by most of us. Many thanks to you Lise! The monthly draw­ing was won by Lise. There was also a “door prize” given by the host­ess and beau­ti­ful yel­low pe­tu­nia plants for each in at­ten­dance. The next meet­ing to take place at the home of Bea Juby, in Austin on June 13th at 1 p.m. The draw­ing to be sup­plied by Lisette Maille. Roll Call: Name your favourite grade in school. There will be three of us at­tend­ing the Semi­An­nual Con­ven­tion in Aber­corn on May 24th. Fol­low­ing this meet­ing and the say­ing of the WI Grace all were treated to a tasty tea, sand­wiches, cheese, squares, and fruit, which was much en­joyed. Mar­jorie was again thanked by all for ev­ery­thing.
