Reid's Corners Women's Institute has been busy all summer, starting with serving lemonade and cookies on July 22nd on the porch of the Log Cabin at the Bruce County Museum in Southampton.

 On August 18th, the Alzheimer's Tea was held at the Pine River United Church which to date brought in almost $500.00 for the Alzheimer's Society Grey Bruce. Ruth Anne Robinson gave a presentation on the Rural Women Health Support Initiative which provides trained volunteers to support Caregivers in Grey and Bruce Counties. Anyone interested in knowing more can contact them at 1-844-868-4455 as there is no fees for this program.

Several of our members along with Women's Institute members from Purple Grove and Bervie arranged and participated in the Ladies Tent on August 20 and 21st at the Bruce County Heritage Farm Show, south of Paisley. Many of the other Bruce County Branches assisted to make the weekend one that heard 15 speakers at the tent. If you missed is this year, we look forward to having you join us next August.

Planning is underway for the Ripley-Huron Fall Fair group display and food booth with our monthly meeting at 7:00m on September 21st at Pine River United Church on Hwy 21. If you are interested in learning more about Women's Institute, you can give our president Mrs. Brenda Ramsdale a call at 519-396-0014 for more information.
