Hawke's Bay Today - - Reader's Forum -

Ta­matea WI pres­i­dent An­nette Elkins wel­comed ev­ery­one and thanked hostesses Pauline and Val and also mem­bers for do­nat­ing goods to the Adopted Fam­ily.

The theme was Dress up in Coun­try and West­ern and there was one vis­i­tor, Mau­reen, a for­mer mem­ber so it was nice that she re­con­nected.

The for­mal parts of the Oc­to­ber meet­ing were dealt with quickly.

Varna Day was the del­e­gate at the North­ern & Hawke’s Bay Fed­er­a­tion half yearly meet­ing in Septem­ber and she pre­sented a re­port. Ta­matea WI won the Smi­ley Tro­phy for most com­pe­ti­tion points and also the McHardy Vase for their An­nual Re­port.

As we were right in the mid­dle of WI Aware­ness week (Oc­to­ber 8-14) we had de­cided to make good use of the meet­ing by mak­ing ‘Lonely Bou­quets’ to dis­trib­ute the next day. So as soon as the meet­ing was com­pleted, mem­bers moved to the sup­per room where ta­bles laden with flow­ers, fo­liage and rib­bons were wait­ing to be fash­ioned into beau­ti­ful bou­quets. Ev­ery­one com­bined and helped each other make 73 bou­quets.
