Reeve's message to the Round Hill Women's Institute:
Above is a photo of the Round Hill Women's Institute
Congratulations on the 100th Anniversary of the Round Hill Women’s Institute – quite an accomplishment for an organization in a small rural community a few miles north east of Camrose. I was able to skim through some of the historical records of the group and was amazed at all the accomplishments of the group through its existence.
There are common themes which have carried on though the 100 years such as care for others, fund raising for those in need here and across the world, support for our armed forces abroad, fellowship, handicrafts and, especially important, leadership.
While the decades have seen many changes in our lifestyle and our society, the goals of AWI remain the same and are as valuable and applicable as they were in the beginning of the organization. And with the rise of modern communication methods, including email, cell phone technology, computerization, your organization will continue to carry out your goal of serving others.
To you all, congratulations on being part of such a successful organization and best wishes for a meaningful conference.
