Stanstead Journal - - YOUR ANCESTRY -

he first meet­ing of the Hat­ley-Stanstead Women’s In­sti­tute af­ter the summer break was held on Septem­ber 1st at the home of Elaine Stone with Doreen Mof­fatt co-host­ing. Nine mem­bers were present. Pres­i­dent Phyl­lis Dustin wel­comed the mem­bers and con­veyed Birthday wishes to Velma Eryou who has al­ready cel­e­brated her birthday and to Jackie Til­ton who will cel­e­brate at the end of the month. The Col­lect and Salute to the Flag were re­cited by all. Motto for the month is “To live from a gar­den you must live in it first.” Roll call was - Name something that pol­lutes the en­vi­ron­ment. Some of the pol­luters given were gar­den sprays, plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles, wood stoves, run-off from brooks and streams, acid rain, cars, oils and as­bestos. The June min­utes were read by Sec­re­tary Jean Cass and ac­cepted as cor­rect. Busi­ness aris­ing from these min­utes were the Ayer’s Cliff Cul­ture Day in Septem­ber. Be­cause of com­mit­ments of many of the mem­bers around this date it was de­cided that for this year the branch will not par­tic­i­pate. The Christ­mas Vil­lage will be dis­cussed at the next county and branch meet­ing. New Busi­ness: The branch would like to in­vite one of the 4H mem­bers to speak to us about their trip to Western Canada. A mo­tion was made to send do­na­tions to the ACWW Pen­nies for Friend­ship and to the FWIC Hood­less Foun­da­tion, Peace Gar­den and “Wil­lie the Worm”. A think­ing of you card was sent to Deb­bie Smith. Hope you are feel­ing bet­ter Deb­bie. Con­venor Re­ports: Velma Eryou spoke briefly about an ar­ti­cle she found on West Nile. Sev­eral cases have been re­ported in the Town­ships. Bar­bara He­witt showed us how to make a rose out of 2 ap­ples and puff pas­try. Bar­bara also did the monthly pro­gram and re­ported on Les Cer­cles de Fer­mieres /W.I. hand­i­crafts ex­hibit at the Ayer’s Cliff Fair. Stanstead County W.I. came in 2nd.
