The Austin Woman Institute Meeting
Themonthly meeting of the Austin W. I. took place on June 12th at the home of Bea Juby in Austin. At 1:30 Bea opened the meeting with all reciting the M.S. Collect and salute to the Canadian flag. Motto: There isn’t much to see in a small town, but what your hear makes up for it! Roll Call was to name a Country starting with the first letter of your first or last name & speak a moment on it – which brought forward some interesting facts & history about the following Countries: Bangladash; Canada; Equidor; Gaspé; Germany; Great Britain; Peru; Jamaica & Washington, D.C. Minutes & Treasurer’s Report from the May meeting were & all were approved. Plans were made for a Reception celebrating the life of Peter Meesen on June 15th. Plans were also continued for the Garage Sale to be part of the Austin Festival in the Austin Municipal Park on June 22nd. Wool gathering was a skein of yarn brought by Patti Carriere. The monthly drawing was won by Betty C. Thelford. Next month to be supplied by Marjorie Glassford. While Bea was preparing refreshments, she passed around a contest called a ‘BRAIN TEASER’ which we really needed to get our minds in gear! This was followed by a scrumptious tea of sandwiches, veggies with dip, fruit crisps & sweet breads. Last but not least – a well trimmed carrot cake for our two birthday girls – namely: Claudette Giesinger – June 4th & Lisette Maillé – June 23rd. Many thanks were given to Bea for hosting, feeding and chairing the meeting. Everything was much enjoyed by all. The July meeting to be held at the home of Joy Fields in Magog.
