Germoe & District WI members celebrated their 70th birthday at their November meeting by holding a buffet supper with invited guests. Liz Anderson, CFWI Adviser, joined members from Sithney & District WI, Perranuthnoe & District WI and several ex-members, including founder member Virginia Laity.
The membership carries on down the generations from original founder members – present were Jan Semmens, daughter of Joyce Trudgeon; Anna Harry, daughter of Audrey Edwards; and Sheena Thomasson, Germoe & District President, granddaughter of Edith Hobson who was also onetime President.
A huge array of delicious food was provided by members; Maureen Gibson was responsible for the decorations, invitations and keepsakes with a theme of pink roses; and Sue Rayment made the cake decorated with 70 pink icing roses.
The enjoyable entertainment was provided by The Buccas Four, who then joined the company for supper. A big thank you to you all – especially the washer-uppers!
