Rockton WI 100th Anniversary

The 100th Anniversary celebration for Rockton Women’s Institute was held at the Rockton Agricultural Building in January of 2002. One hundred and fifty Members and guests were entertained by a humorous address given by Eleanor Wood.

Tweedsmuir History Books and much more memorabilia created a great deal of interest. Each Member received a 100 Year Pin and Member Ruth Smith was presented with a 60 Year Membership Pin.

A Branch history was outlined by Members Carolyn James and Donna Miedema, followed by greetings from local politicians.
