Women's Institute Annual Strawberry Tea

The annual Strawberry Tea happened this past Tuesday, June 11th. The Women's Institute put on a great event, and the strawberry shortcake was delicious!

We saw over 200 people stream through the museum's gates to enjoy their delicious treats. The W.I. also delivered over 400 pre-ordered shortcakes around town. All the hard work put in by the Pemberton W.I. paid off in another successful and tasty Strawberry Tea. We send a big thank you from all of us to the Pemberton W.I.!

The Pemberton Women’s Institute is valued by the Pemberton and District Museum and Archives. The first meeting of the Pemberton W.I. chapter was held in 1940. As early as 1943, Frances Decker appealed to the W.I. for a permanent record of the Pemberton pioneers. This appeal led to the creation of the Pemberton Pioneer Women’s Committee, consisting of Mary (Mollie) Ronayne, Frances Decker, and Margaret Fougberg, who then began collecting records and artifacts associated with Pemberton’s first settlers. The current museum and its collection would not have been possible without the initiative taken by the Women’s Institute. For more information come by the museum and visit our W.I. display in the Sam Jim House!
