LERRYN WI - SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE
Tuesday 16th September 2008
A steady stream of people visited the Red Store during the weekend of 13 - 14 September to admire WI records and artefacts from the late 1940s, when the Lerryn Institute was founded, to the present day. Guests also enjoyed the complimentary tea/coffee - and (of course!) the home-made cookies.
The range and quality of the craft-work on display was awe-inspiring, and the beautifully mounted wall displays built up a vivid picture of a lot of people having a good time while developing all sorts of new skills and interests - and facing some interesting challenges - over the years. And it continues: several visitors to the exhibition took the opportunity to sign up for a new course just being developed.
Distinguished people present included Mary Northcott, Lerryn WI's first President and still an active member, as well as guests from the village and from other WIs. We were delighted to see you all. Thank you for coming.
