Overlander Women’s Institute Report

Thank you to Jill Hayward and the Star/Journal for the great coverage of the presentation of the Life Quilt for the Honorable Judith Guichon. It was a pleasure and honour for Overlander WI to have a great representation for their annual Rural Women’s Tea at Hefflely Creek Hall. Thanks to all those that attended or donated to the event and plans are already in the works for next year.

We have been asked to give you a monthly update of what WI and especially what Overlander WI has been doing.

On Saturday, Nov. 24, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. we will have our Christmas Bake and Craft Sale at Independent Grocer in the North Hills Mall in Kamloops. There will be a variety of plates of goodies, loaves, cookies and of course crafts; Christmas ornaments, towels, wall hangings, lots of knitting and crochet articles and quilts.. We hope to see you there.

Being a busy time of year, we are also preparing a delicious Christmas dinner for Family First and Baby Head Start for Wednesday, Dec. 5.
