40th Anniversary 2012
Celebrating 40 years of Kelvedon WI
At our June 2012 meeting members and guests were offered a glass of Pimms to celebrate our 40th anniversary.
The tables were decorated with ruby red covers and elegant vases of flowers. Each wine glass held a small hand crafted gift in a red bag.
Photographs of WI events, taken over the last forty years, were shown on a large screen evoking memories for some and comments like "look at you" from others.
The colour red was also prominent in the choice of raffle prizes.
A light supper was served with ham, salmon, new potatoes and various salads followed by a lovely choice of desserts.
A poem written by Angela Maskery was sung to the tune of "sing a song of sixpence" by a group of members. It covered many of the events that Kelvedon WI members have taken part in over the last forty years.
Sally, our President, four past-Presidents and a WI Advisor then cut the cakes.
The evening was rounded off with a very amusing sketch "Funny Business" written by Angela and performed by a few members.
