The Bervie Women’s Institute met Wednesday morning at the Bervie United Church for the Christmas meeting and pot luck luncheon.
President Sylvia Hasbury opened with a reading, “Christmas Comes Softly,” followed by the usual openings. A thank you was read from Dianne Cook of the Kincarf ACW for our assistance with the recent Bob White funeral reception. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to long-time member, Betty Jean White and her family.
Donation jars are being prepared for The Beef Way and Fincher’s, collecting for Lyme Disease research. In lieu of a gift exchange, a special collection was also taken for Lyme Disease research.
The Roll Call was answered with, “My favourite Christmas memory” and a stamped Christmas card. Mildred Griffith gave the sunshine report.
Convener Janice Hewitt presented the Christmas program, and everyone enjoyed a delicious pot luck lunch.
The next meeting is Jan. 3, 2018, at 10 a.m. at the Bervie United Church, with the topic, “Canada 150 stories.”
Merry Christmas everyone and a Healthy and Happy 2018!
