The Woodland Springs W.I. had been asked to cater a TEA for the quilt show held at the Sports Complex in Mount Forest. Our very capable member Marg Mitchell headed up the committee and we served sandwiches to the workers at lunch time, but tea, coffee, scones and of course our Dandelion Jelly to anyone who sat down for a cup of tea. A donation jar was put on each table and people gave according to their wishes. What a great job ladies!
Our Woodland Springs W.I. group again gave away samples of our infamous biscuits and Dandelion Jelly. Our members make the Dandelion jelly exclusively and only the members have the secret recipe.
December 13, 2012.... Our December meeting will be held at the home of our President Shirley Love. Her home is always beautifully decorated for the Christmas season and always a table filled with Christmas goodies. What a wonderful time of the year.
Christmas shopping has been done in the amount of $500.00 to be donated to the Christmas Hampers. A yearly event held at the United Church in Mt. Forest. This years shopping was done for teenagers. What a great job done by Jennifer in her US shopping trip. Thanks Jen. Several of our members will be donating their time on Monday Dec. 17th for wrapping of the Christmas hampers. Thanks girls.

On June 16, 2012 Woodland Springs W.I. will be having a garage sale to be held at the Mount Forest Firehall. Start going through your closets and shelves ladies and make this year as successful as last. Also put on your aprons and heat up your ovens for all the desserts that are such a huge success at our sale.
On May 17, 2012, Woodland Springs W.I. hosted the District Annual Meeting at the Mount Forest Curling Club. Approximately 30 members from both Grey North and Grey South and Bruce attended. We decorated the hall with beautiful spring flowers donated by one of our members. We provided a wonderful chicken lunch including potatoes, carrot salad, brocoli salad and rolls. Our desserts were a treat to our eyes, also baked by one of Woodland's younger members. By working together our setup and cleanup job was a cinch. Thanks to all who stayed and helped.
Our Dandelion Jelly was again a huge success at the Holstein Maple Fest on April 14th and 15th, 2012. Despite the rain and cool weather there was a huge crowd attending and loving our sample of tea biscuits and dandelion jelly.
We will be making tea biscuits and handing them out with a sample of our Dandelion Jelly at the Holstein Maple Fest April 14th and 15th, 2012.
