April Meeting - Buns Got Talent

Sunday, 27 April 2014 § 0

Last week saw us celebrating our 5th birthday party in true Roses style - there was cheese, cake, chat, mystery present swapping, name badge making and caricatures courtesy of the very talented Mik Artistic and a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to us to get us all in a birthday party mood.

There was also the formal bit of WI business as our birthday party is also our annual general meeting - Lucy (our president) gave us a report of the year and its highlights - bricklaying stands out as an especially good workshop and the talk about the history of buttons and the talk about bones also stood out as particular highlights. She also confirmed that she'd be staying on as President, Helen as treasurer, Sam as Secretary, Gloria as Vice Chair, Siobhan as Bookclub Lady and general committee member and thanked those Susan and Tana for their help over the last twelve months but who were now standing down.

Helen gave us a finance report (we're in good shape), Siobhan reported on the recent WI Conference she attended about Inspiring Women and Gloria gave us forthcoming highlights that West Yorkshire federation are organising and also told us about the National WI Raffle and encouraged us all to buy tickets. Sadly though she didn't win the talent competition but former president Gemma did with her recorder playing. Gemma also handed over the 5th anniversary certificate which had been presented to Buns and Roses by Janice Langley CHair of the National Federation of Womens Institutes at the West Yorkshire Regional AGM held at the end of March.

If you're not a member but would like to come along to a Buns and Roses meeting we meet the third Thursday of the month at Cosmopolitans in Leeds, from 7pm for a 7.30pm start - you don't need to book you can just turn up and find out for yourself what goes on at a meeting - our next meeting is Thursday 15th May 2015 and is going to be all about bees with a talk by local beekeeper and Minster FM dj Alex Brown - hope to see lots of you there :-)

What's this?
