Womens's Institute members from Otago and Southland will
gather in Fairfield today to compete, share ideas and enjoy
each others' company.
The Mid-Otago Federation of the institute is holding its
annual meeting at the Fairfield Community Hall..
Federation publicity officer Jean Bagley said about 60 women
were expected to attend.
A highlight of the day would be the presentation of two
good-service awards to members who had done a lot for the
federation, she said.
Members would enter baking, flowers and craft items for
judging and some would go on to be judged at the national
annual meeting in June.
Mrs Bagley said as part of the annual meeting, a speaker from
Alzheimer's New Zealand had been invited to help educate
institute members about the condition.
