On May 9 at 7pm Crete Pooley opened the meeting and the business was dealt with first. The committee will meet every three months and the next meeting will be in September. Sally Morgans and Jennie Hendy will judge the flower competition and collect the money. The members who took part in the Porthleven annual WI quiz did very well and were only a few points behind the winner.
The winner of Flower of the Month was Yvonne Brett; Marion Ferris won the raffle. The competition for five round peppermint creams: 1, Elizabeth Schofield; 2, Maureen Dale; 3, Gillian Lawrence. Tea was served by Jennie Hendy and Margaret Toller.
The talk “The Olympic Games” was given by Julie Search. She was chosen as a torch bearer in Ashton. Her uniform arrived a week before the event, the legs were too long and had to be altered; the top was see-through and she wore a white vest under it. Her daughter saw the "flame" arrive at Culdrose with the celebrities. When one torch was lit from another it was called "the kiss.” Her torch was passed around the room and everyone held it. Julie worked from 7am to 7 pm at the Olympic site on the VIP seats and toilets. Everyone enjoyed the talk and Crete Pooley gave the vote of thanks. Next month’s meeting is on June 13 when Catrina Langford will talk on St Petroc Society for the Homeless. The competition is a poem called Home and the vote of thanks to be given by Margaret Osborne. Tea hostesses will be Marion Ferris and Mary Seargeant.
