Market Harborough WI celebrated its second, successful year last night at the AGM, ably led by our President, Hazel Stacey, in her own inimitable style. Who else could get away with not having a Minutes Secretary this year in front of the local Federation representative, Caroline? The good news is that we do now have one. Karen stepped up (apologies not sure of your last name at the moment). Claire Salisbury also stepped up to become Marketing and Social Media Secretary. Thank you, too, to Vicky Watts who has stepped down from Secretary/PR following the birth of her first baby
Yes, seriously, we have had another excellent year, maintaining a good membership. Monthly meetings have had good attendances with lots of different activities and speakers. There was some debate whether this was the Egyptian Dancing or Self Defence!
Finances are looking healthy, too, thanks to the hard work of the Committee organising the fashion show, raffle and refreshments, and, of course, to you, the members for supporting these so generously.
We then had a lovely Dutch supper, members bringing a whole range of savoury and sweet nibbles to tempt everyone. We loved the cupcakes (see picture below) with the WI logo and Inspiring Women.
Finally, members tested their knowledge on a food and drinks quiz, including a ‘name the chef’ round and Pictionary. Here’s a question for you – drawing a Danish pastry was easy but, how do you sketch an egg sandwich?! Team WInners came top – well done!
