Craighurst Women’s Institute June Meeting
Craighurst Women’s Institute met at HQ Restaurant in Craighurst Tuesday June 21. The meeting part was short but sweet. We dispensed with the Ode and Collect, not wanting to put the other diners off. Roll call was “update the state of your garden or flower bed”. Eight members responded, with varying tales of weeds, lupins, and vegetables. Minutes and treasury reports went by. Then the Corresponding Secretary read us a letter to the Springwater News from Samuel. Imagine our pleasure to hear how Samuel enjoys reports from the CWI! Way to go, Samuel. We are chuffed by your praise, and we voted to contact you for guest speaker or plain guest.
We continued with news of the village, plans for July and August outdoor at the Park meetings, and the reading of an email to be sent to the Township once again asking for Craighurst Park Maintenance. Then there was a clink of glasses by us all, to us all, for having stayed the course throughout COVID. You too, gentle readers, give yourselves a pat on the back for getting through the Pandemic. Stay alert and safe. And be sure to come by Craighurst for the restaurants, the groceries, the drugstore, the auto repairs, the gasoline fill ups, the shops, all told 17, the CPR whistle, and on the third Tuesday of most months the Craighurst Women’s Institute.
