WI expands again
November is the month of the AGM for Stanhoe and Barwick WI.
Our retiring treasurer Mary Lancefield had balanced the books admirably for another year, and was presented with a small gift in recognition of her committee work for several years.
Our secretary Valerie Robson reported with wit on our varied activities, acknowledging the efficacy of emails for administration.
Our president Pamela Austin reported on our increase in membership from 17 to 28 members over the year, and praised us for continuing success with our aim of “friendship and socialising” within our group.
To round off the proceedings and for us all to get to know one another better we finished with “2 true and 1 false statements” from everyone. Who knew that one of our members had climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro, that another had been charged by a bull elephant, or that another had worked in Downing Street? Much laughter ensued.
We now look forward to a workshop on stained glass work, an afternoon tea visit, a Christmas Lunch, and a fun filled December meeting.
