St. Mary’s CWL recently celebrated their 85th Anniversary at their Spring Tea. There were several tables set up with archives and memorabilia for new and long-time members to peruse. They enjoyed a luncheon of fancy sandwiches, dessert dainties, and—of course—tea!
A representative from Ladysmith Family and Friends spoke to the group about their centre for families and caregivers. A goodwill collection from those presented yielded $465, which was presented to Ladysmith Family and Friends.
The highlight of their day was the presentation of a 70-year pin to their Sister Marion Gordeu, who received the pin, a bouquet of flowers, and much applause with a gracious smile and tears in her eyes.
Thank you to all who attended, and made this Anniversary so special for us.
