Our quiz night in Llangefni, saw a great turn out with twenty three teams. Fifteen of our WIs came along. It was so popluar, some had more than one team.
Quiz mistress Sue devised and read out the questions. She had us laughing along with her as she kept us on our toes, explaining why her answer was final.
There was a good mix of questions, the human body, geography, music and general knowledge. There were sixty of them in all. During the break, in which we had tea and sandwiches, we were able to look at the Dingbats and a picture quiz. It's surprising how you see a familiar face and the name of that person vanishes completely from your mind! Dingbats was a real mindbender with the answers making us laugh because its so obvious when you know. There were a lot of groans and sighs as we given the answers.
We finished the evening with a raffle and a vote of thanks from the President was given to the Sports and Leisure committee who organised it all. They did a great job!
The winner with a score of 72 was Llanfaelog WI, and they all received a box of roses.
The lowest score of 44 ensured the winners all got tubes of smarties!
On Monday, 21st we had our first President's Evening held at the WI hall in Llanfairpwll. This was an opportunity for officers or representatives from each WI to meet up with the Chair and Vice Chair of the Federation.
The weather was particular cold and wet, and yet approximately twenty four people arrived to take part. Fifteen out of sixteen of the WIs were represented.
The two officers from the board gave a talk about current membership and finance with focus on how to attract new members in 2019. They also talked about the role of the Federation.
A lively discussion followed about recruitment, and spreading the word on about, dymanic organisation the WI has become. Lot's of great ideas came forward, especially how some were getting involved in the community and local schools.
Refreshments were served half way through the evening, and it was a chance for members to mingle and meet each other.
All in all, it was very enjoyable and successful.
