What’s New: Main River Women’s Institute Valentines Lunch and Quilt Show

Join us at the Westbridge Hall for the Women’s Institute (Main River) 84th Annual Valentine’s Lunch and Quilt Show.

Did you know?  This Quilt Show has been held at the Westbridge Hall since 1936!

Beginning at 11 am, you will be able to view many fine quilts made from talented local crafters, and have lunch too.  There will also be door prizes, a silent auction, plants, baking and books for sale!

The cost is $10, and all proceeds go to Women’s Institute Main River to benefit our local community.

To give you a bit more information about The Women’s Institute in general, and the Kettle River District in particular, read on.

British Columbia Women’s Institute is one of the greatest educational tools available to all women. What other organization is so diversified? BCWI supports women locally, provincially, and federally as well as world-wide. Branches can be found throughout the Province from Vancouver Island to the Peace River. Members are concerned about buying local thus preserving our agricultural land for food sustainability. Besides this, the members support their communities by: organizing local events, teaching home skills, raising funds for BC Children’s Hospital and Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island (formerly Queen Alexander Hospital), donating items to hospitals, transition houses and families in need. This is just the tip of the iceberg; there is so much more that BCWI members do for their communities.

Locally, the Kettle River District WI is comprised of the Bridesville WI, the Main River WI (Westbridge area), the Rock Creek WI, and the Sunshine Valley WI (Grand Forks area). All are active groups within their communities, providing countless hours of dedicated service.
