In 2022, the Women's Institute will reach a milestone - 125 years from it’s beginning at the home of Janet and Erland Lee in Stoney Creek, Ontario. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize and promote WI across Canada and it will be upon us before we know it!
Timeline to a successful event is as follows:
Get Ready 2019 – 2020
All Branches, District, and/or Areas should be discussing and deciding on what sort of event/celebration they want.
Form a committee
It will/may be necessary to book early for your space & date if you have a particular location in mind.
Possibilities are unlimited depending on the members' choices: Flag raising & local declaration of WI week in your municipality, tree planting, special educational sessions about WI’s local contributions, displays in a storefront, a special fundraising project for your local community……. are just a few ideas.
Bottom line – this is a great time to have a party and let your communities know we are a fun group!
Get Set- 2020-2021
If you haven’t done so, book your venue.
Plan your promotion.
Seek out sponsors.
Work on projects as needed.
Make final preparations.
Start the celebrations!
We look forward to getting updates from your Provincial Representatives throughout the next couple of years.
