    Administrative history

    A meeting was held at the Blind Bay Community Hall October 11/1977 to determine interest in forming a Women’s Institute branch with a history of that organization given from its inception in 1897. The name, Talana Women’s Institute, was chosen at a directors’ meeting November 1977. The first regular meeting was held November 1977 at the home of Mrs. Kathleen Goss. This branch was officially incorporated December 1977.

    The Talana Women’s Institute participated actively in local service projects as well as provincial and international projects. Delegates attended annual and regional conferences and the branch participated in hosting these events.
