Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada is pleased to announce the winning candidate for the 2020 Woman of the Year award, and she is -
Evelyn's name was submitted by Quebec Women’s Institute. She was well recommended and is praised for her excellent leadership in Women’s Institute affairs and other community groups.
Even though she is in her nineties, she still retails an active interest in her Fordyce W.I. branch and diligently wrote monthly articles for the local newspaper promoting their affairs until last year. Words from a friend say it all,” that her body is now frail, but her mind and her interest in life is as sharp as it will ever be.”
Congratulations, Evelyn, and thank you for your many years of service to Home and Country.
