“Let’s Celebrate” Results

By Jane Miller, State Women's Activities Committee

  SEPTEMBER 2008 -- Our second annual “Let’s Celebrate Day!” was held on July 26th at Good Will Grange Hall.  The judging of all of the CWA contests, the photo contest and the Publicity Poster Contest were held and the entries placed on display.  A delicious lunch was provided by the Junior Director, Joan Perry and her crew, which helped to fatten their treasury!  The judging was followed by a wonderful program arranged by our State Lecturer, Marge Bernhardt. 

The CWA theme, “The Melody Lingers On” was carried out with the music of the Bristol Old Tyme Fiddlers, which was enjoyed by all who attended.  The winners in each of the contests were announced followed by refreshments.  Our thanks to everyone who helped to make the day a success.
