HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY IRMA WOOD OF AYER’S CLIFF
sary this year, held their Christmas luncheon in the Colby Curtis’ solarium last Friday afternoon. “We were very well-received and we had a good dinner. We also had our monthly meeting and then visited the Museum. It was the first time that we went to the museum for a luncheon, but I don’t think it will be our last!” said
Marcelle Goudreau, the president of the organization.
“Our association is as much for city women as for country women. Our mission is to teach and promote handicraft work, and to pass on the skills to our young,” explained Mrs. Goudreau. In January, members of this club will begin visiting school to teach interested students how to knit.
The club’s first president, the late Eva Galvin, began a weaving room for members above the Registration Office on Dufferin Street which is still in use today. Members meet their once a month and use it to practise or learn the art of weaving. Members also put on an annual exhibition and sale of their work, in April, and participate every summer in the Ayer’s Cliff Fair.
“We’re always ready to accept new members, whether English or French. We already have a few English members and most of us are bilingual,” concluded Mrs. Goudreau. For more information or to join, call Mrs. Goudreau at 819 8765658. Members of Stanstead’s
