Dovenby WI April 2008
President Diana Clark opened the meeting and after the usual business, the annual trip was discussed. This is to take place on August 11th, and will be to Skipton Market and a canal boat trip.
Guest speakers were then introduced - Barbara Gate and Gladys Hunter, to give a talk on Reiki and its treatments. Reiki, originally from Tibet, was rediscovered in the 19th Century by a Japanese monk. Reiki is a simple technique for transferring healing energy from the giver to the receiver to vitalise the life force and balance the energies of the body. Demonstrations were given on several members, which seemed to be an enjoyable experience.
The competition - The prettiest candle was won by Nancy Fearon, with runner-up Geraldine Baldwin.
The quiz was won by Kath Palmer
The Raffle was won by Nancy Fearon.
