District 1 is having an event!!!!!

On Saturday, July 25 at 1 pm at Dunvegan. This was a hastily put together event brought on by the impending visit of President-elect who is on a road trip. I am looking forward to seeing as many WI members as possible with social distancing being the guideline.

Those ARGYLE WOMEN are at it again. Working in the garden on Saturday morning we were pleased to see such a nice show of Fleeban(?) and the roses.

Summer Fun

Ridgewood Branch went to the Kerry Wood Nature Center then had their lunch and meeting. Guests from another branch joined them at MacKenzie Trail for tea afterwards. From l to r

Pauline Bill, Marilyn Wattenbarger, Grace Reister(Guest from Argyle) Faye Mayberry, Diane Dammann(Guest from Argyle) Grace Schefflemair. Vi Moore, Dorothy Bickley and Evelyn Cressey were just leaving as we, the guests, arrived. It was a beautiful day in a beautiful setting and lovely company.

DUFFIELD BRANCH held a meeting June 18 with all 5 members and 2 guests in attendance. They discussed the resolutions that will be coming up at the Convention and the handicrafts they plan to enter. One members accepted the challenge to write about how the pandemic affected her.

ELLA JANE BRANCH had a meeting in June and July. They have a new member!!!!!! Up to 17 members now. They were busy cleaning out the Cessford hall. They will go back to meeting in members’ homes

Sorry to report the passing of charter member Alene Kading on June 4 at age 89.

They are contributing to the new hamlet sign for Cessford that will be posted for highway 876.

The local Library Manager is a member of the branch. She outlined the new procedures at the library due to the COVID virus.

Four Branches have sent reports

Valhalla Busy Bees will be 100 on June 27, 2020. Congratulations. Well done!

Valhalla Busy Bees suffered the loss of their President, Tracy Campbell to cancer. She was way too young and will be sorely missed. The branch did the memorial for Tracy. They recorded 50 volunteer hours.

Echo Hill had 6 of the 7 members in attendance plus 1 visitor at the June 3 meeting. The roll call was to name a local business. They have 90 volunteer hours.

Darwell had all 5 of the members in on the June 3 meeting although one member was on speaker phone. What ever works. The roll call was “a skill or talent you wish you had” Interesting responses were, American Sign Language, musical talent, time management, crochet and computer web page design.

The program was about MSG.

Congratulation to Edie Richardson upon receiving her 50 year membership pin

Argyle Branch went on the annual trip to a green house to buy the bedding plants for all of our gardens. They went to Echo Glen by Donalda about 45 minutes away. One member went looking for a high pot—she found it.

President-elect Diane Dammann called on Irvine WI members to join in for lunch at the local Irvine Hotel.
