The February thirteenth meeting of Forest Women’s Institute was held at the home of Betty Blight.
Laurel Desrosier called the meeting to order and Eleanor Wiersema read the Mary Stewart Collect. Carol Clifford read the minutes of the last meeting and they were approved. The financial report was given by Eleanor and approved by the members.

We will make a memoriam donation to the cat scan in honour or Everett Hanson.
We signed a get well card for Vivian Hartnell. We discussed the completion of the quilt. We will meet at Eleanor’s on February twenty sixth to begin this project.
We want to have a ROSE session. There will be further discussion at the next meeting.
