President Nita Eubank opened the meeting by introducing visitors from Bothel & Kirkland and Dundraw WIs.
Apologies were made for the absence of our visiting speaker, who unfortunately was ill.
Acting Secretary Carol Colquitt read the minutes and Nita continued with the WI County News.
Considering that the evening was devoid of a speaker, things went very well. Member Jean Moralee offered to play the piano, and we all joined in with a few Christmas carols. Gareth Malone should have been present to improve the singing, especially on the high notes!
Members had produced an excellent buffet, both sweet and savoury.
The quiz was won by Silvana Hewitt, with Sheila Wilkinson and Carol Hanratty a close second.
The competition, a piece of costume jewellery was won by Nita Eubank, with Doreen Storey winning the visitors' prize.
The raffle was won by Sheila Wilkinson, with other prizes won by visitors.
The December meeting will not be at the school, but is a Christmas Dinner at a hotel.
