Botwood Women’s Institute began in 1979. We are affiliated provincially with NLWI, nationally with The Federation Of Women’s Institutes of Canada and internationally with Associated Country Women of the World. We are a nonprofit organization and always have the maximum number of members as set down by the fire department guidelines, with a waiting list for new members.
Our WI Aims & Objectives: To help develop better informed, happier and more useful citizens; To help women discover, stimulate and develop leadership; To help identify and resolve needs and problems in the community and To help women acquire practical sound life skills.
For those going through severe medical events, i.e. cancer, we provide Comfort Quilts which are made by our members on our quilt days. We also provide a scholarship to Botwood Collegiate. We provide education monthly in a wide variety of subjects to all our members. Our group has participated in all community events over the years. But true enough “Food, friends and kindliness we share!"
