AGM last Wednesday

On Wednesday, 26th September, it was our Annual General Meeting.   MHWI’s Financial Statement was presented to members for their perusal and the Annual Report of our activities for the last year was read out..  Members then had a chance to vote for President for the coming year, under the supervision of Joy, one of our Federation’s WI advisers.  We are pleased to announce that Anne Clayton was re-elected as President for a second term.    We have also had offers of help with the Committee work so it looks like we are up and running again for another year!.   Details of  your new Committee Members will be published shortly.

Following the business side of the evening, we were all able to relax and enjoy a fun, social evening, while tucking into the generous Dutch Supper members had provided.   Then each table was given a cardboard cut out doll, told to get creative and make it an outfit!    I think you’ll agree the results were pretty impressive!.   Here’s the winning doll with her team:

We also had a very interesting jam jar raffle with members really making an effort to decorate their jar and provide some intriguing contents!   Here’s just a few of them:

Annual General Meeting of MHWI + Dutch Supper! Wednesday 26th September 2018

Lots of things for you to think about and remember this week!

Firstly, it is the Annual General Meeting of Market Harborough WI this Wednesday, 26th September 2018 at 7.30 pm at our usual venue of the Congregational Church, Market Harborough.   This is your chance to get involved, vote for officers, or maybe volunteer to help with the running of your WI – all help, great or small, is very much appreciated.

Vacancy for Secretary

We're hiring-w500-h500

We still need someone to fill the role of Secretary – we can’t continue as a WI without someone to do this!  This is a fairly straightforward admin role – e-mails, post, agendas, etc.   (We have a separate volunteer to do the Minutes.}  There’s flexibility on when you carry out your role and we promise you full support to help you get started.   Have a chat with us on Wednesday if you think you could be interested.

Dutch Supper, Competitions and Prizes!

In order to save using plastic or doing loads of washing up, please could everyone bring their own crockery and cutlery with them!    Many thanks!

Jar Raffle
