One hundred Members and friends gathered on Saturday, April 20, 2013 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Fonthill-Singer’s Corners WI (Hamilton Area) with a Victorian Tea. It was an elegant event with ladies wearing decorated hats.

Greetings were received from other Branches, Districts and Area as well as politicians. Guest speakers included Mayor of Pelham Dave Augustyn and FWIO President-Elect Margaret Byl, who were both active participants in the event. Pam Bronn, a Branch Member, gave a most interesting history of WI and the Branch. Around the hall were displays of Tweedsmuir Histories, items that Members have made at short courses, items made by Branch Members to be sent to Canada Comforts this year, and caring for the environment (a special focus of the Branch) with native plants to take home and plant, to attract butterflies to our yards.
