Violet Hill WI 100th Anniversary

 

The 100th Anniversary of Violet Hill Women’s Institute (Central Area) was celebrated in style on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at the Dufferin County Museum and Archives. Fifty guests along with past Members joined the current 6 Members for a buffet lunch, musical entertainment by the Shelburne Fiddlers and cake.

Violet Hill WI began in June 1911 with 4 Members and grew to 32 Members by the very next month. The Branch actively continues to help where needed in the community by supporting groups and projects such as: the Shelburne Fair – Children’s Section, Dufferin Oaks Tuck Shop and Primrose School grade 8 Scholarships. This is all done under the leadership of their President Jean Cameron, a 52-year Member.
