Dental health was the topic when the Bervie Women’s Institute met at the hall Wednesday (Sept. 9) at 10 a.m.
Islay Eby opened the meeting with a reading, “God’s Fall Fair,” followed by the usual openings. The roll call was answered by “How long should you brush your teeth?” and/or “What did you use to brush your teeth with when toothpaste wasn’t available?” The answer to the last part is baking soda and salt.
Sandra Husk, a dental hygienist, gave an interesting talk on how to care for our teeth and how our teeth affect other health issues that we may experience. Joyce Roach thanked Sandra and presented her with a gift.
Donations will be made to the Red Cross (Syria), the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation Radiothon, and Kenya.
Several members will attend the Grey Bruce Women's Institute Convention, Oct. 1, in Chepstow – a item for the silent auction will be supplied by Elsie Schular.
A collection for the Alzheimer Society will take place at our November meeting. Mildred Griffith gave the sunshine report.
The next meeting will be held Oct. 7 at 10 a.m., in the hall, with the theme being "History and Heritage." Thanks to Elsie Schular for the nice lunch.
